As most everyone directed their attention to either the MTV Video Music Awards, Game of Thrones, or a new episode of Insecure Sunday night (August 27), Frank Ocean decided to gift his real ones with a world premiere of his newest "Provider" track on the latest episode of his "blonded RADIO" show on Beats 1.
The singer-songwriter rolls out yet another smooth ballad with the track that comes in tandem with an official lyric video, currently only available to view via his website.
In the clip, visual artist Tom Sachs takes a boombox and recontructs it with larger speakers and a machete, then sticks a tape in to play "Provider."
We're treated to a bouncing Hello Kitty symbol as we read along to the infectious new single.
No word yet on when a new project is offcially dropping, but we're hoping that this new music and his recent summer run across various festival dates (despite a few cancellations) point to a fast approaching arrival instead of an inevitable return to Frank's hermit-like ways.

The last time we got full-length vibes from the singer, songwriter, and rapper was with last year's blonde and Endless projects with the former serving as his second studio album and naturally garnering the most critical acclaim of the two as it arrived outfitted features from the likes of Beyonce, Andre 3000, Yung Lean, and Kim Burrell.
For now, bask in the glory of new Frank tunes.
Trophy case still light, body need a race stripe
And these minerals on my body break light
And these reds on my body brakelight
New man comin' up ahead on his own two
Is you a natural blondie like Goku?
