Frank Ocean’s Blond Credits Bowie, Kanye, Jamie xx, Kendrick Lamar, the Beatles, More

Days after the surprise visual album Endless, Frank Ocean has released Blond, the long, long, long-awaited follow-up to Channel Orange. Like the visual album, Blond—formerly known as Boys Don’t Cry—is packed with collaborators. Some are expected, others less so. An “album contributors” section from his corresponding “Boys Don’t Cry” magazine credits David Bowie, Kanye West, Jamie xx, Kendrick Lamar, Beyoncé, the Beatles, André 3000, Brian Eno, Pharrell, Elliott Smith, and many more.

Check out the full list of contributors below via Twitter—while the song-by-song credits have not been released, André 3000 can be heard doing a verse on “Solo (Reprise).” Lyrics from Elliott Smith’s “A Fond Farewell” and the Beatles’ “Here, There, and Everywhere” appear to be featured in “Seigfried” and “White Ferrari,” respectively.
