Frank Ocean has finally blessed the world with a new track, single-handedly restoring my faith in humanity once more.
Frank debuted “DHL” during the latest episode of his Beats 1 show, “blonded RADIO”, just a couple days after his aptly-titled NYC queer club night ‘PrEP+’. (Here’s his response to the event’s backlash, in case you missed it.)
During “blonded 008″ – his first Beats 1 broadcast since last Christmas’ episode – Frank also played a whole heap of tracks from the club night, including remixes of two more previously-unheard tracks, “Cayendo” and “Dear April”. These two tracks are available to purchase in vinyl via his website but are currently unavailable for streaming in their original formats.
Speaking of his website’s store, you can also grab a signature PrEP+ tee… if you have a spare $100 to throw away.
Frank’s return has unsurprisingly sent us all into a frenzy.

Frank’s latest drops have left me with a lot of questions… Did ‘PrEP+’ signal the arrival of a new album? Judging by the series of graphics at the bottom of the “DHL” cover, will this be the 4th track out of 13? When can we expect the rest?
Okay, I need to not get ahead of myself. Let’s sit back, put our feet up and listen to “DHL” on a 7-hour loop.
