Frank Ocean, it's like we don't even know you anymore.

Early Sunday morning (April 23), as has been his modus operandi for the past few weeks, the once-reclusive singer debuted episode #004 of his Apple Music show blonded RADIO on Beats 1.

At the end of the hour-long program, hosted by the artist himself, Vegyn, Roof Access, and Federico Aliprandi, Ocean debuted two new songs: "Lens" and a remixed version of "Lens" featuring Travis Scott.

After disappearing for several years after the success of his debut album Channel Orange, Ocean returned in 2016 with two albums: Endless and Blonde. Despite the quality of both projects, though, the buzz brought on by Ocean's return from the unknown didn't last for very long. 

However, given the sudden rise in popularity of singles over albums, along with the freedom that being an independent artist has given Frank since he parted ways with Def Jam last year, Ocean has switched up his strategy, treating fans to three new records over the past seven weeks: the bold bisexual ballad "Chanel," the Tyler, the Creator and Hov-assisted "Biking" and the Calvin Harris-produced "Slide" with Migos.

While "Lens" is currently available for download on iTunes, Frank fans are currently ectastic their favorite artist continues to deliver the goods. Talk about great optics.
