(650)82OCEAN let’s you skip the painful wait.

When it comes to releasing his new album, Grammy-winning R&B singer Frank Ocean has had more false starts than an offensive tackle. 

He’s been teasing the follow-up to 2012’s acclaimed Channel Orange since 2013. His Tumblr jokes about the album, reportedly titled Boys Don’t Cry, and its missed deadlines by way of a cryptic image of stamped library book return dates. 


On Aug. 1, this reporter spent more than six hours watching Ocean perform hobbyist woodwork during an ominous livestream—but nothing came of it.

At least you can now ignore the moody artist’s gimmicks while simultaneously knowing the minute his record lands online.  

(650)82OCEAN scans the web—Spotify, iTunes, and Twitter—for all things Frank Ocean. As soon as the album goes live, it will text you a purchase link, and our national nightmare will be over. According to Vulture, the free app is a product of University of California, Davis engineering student Shahzeb Khan. 

I’m all out of tears to cry, so sign me up.
