Oh, you fortunate voters, you. A particular version of Frank Ocean’s Beats 1 present “Blonded Radio” is airing proper now! After a prolonged hiatus (the final present aired in August 2017, when Frank premiered “Provider”) the elusive musician is as much as one thing new: getting you to the polls to train your civic responsibility. This morning’s episode — his eighth — is titled “Blonded Midterms pt. 1.”
In between songs, Frank and his pals focus on gerrymandering, racism, the alt-right, voter suppression, and their very own experiences going to the polls. In January, Ocean hinted that he’ll launch new music in 2018 — is that a part of what we’re getting as we speak?
Tune in to the present dwell Apple Music from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. ET.
Update, 12:35 p.m.: Frank Ocean is Pokèmon-sending you to the polls as we speak, whether or not you prefer it or not. The musician has arrange pop-up retailers in Houston, Miami, Dallas, and Atlanta (chosen to help Stacey Abrams in Georgia, Andrew Gillum in Florida, and Beto O’Rourke in Texas). Voters get free merch, in keeping with a message posted to his Tumblr: “Bring proof (a photograph of you on the poll) that you just voted to any of the places under and get some free merch. Because God bless America.” Well, hiya! Let’s have a good time that!
