Frank Ocean Restocks Blonde Vinyl for the First Time in Years

1 min read

Frank Ocean is back with new merch—just in time for the holidays. In typical Frank Ocean fashion, the songwriter took to Instagram on Saturday (December 17) to publish a series of Instagram Stories directing fans to his website, where they can find t-shirts, posters, and vinyl copies of his 2016 album Blonde for sale.

The 2xLP Blonde gatefold includes a lyrics insert and poster, in addition to the record itself. Posters and t-shirts feature a stylized photo of Ocean sitting at a Lenovo Thinkpad laptop, the logos for his Blonded Radio show, and an edited image of Succession actor Jeremy Strong, who is mentioned by name in one of the other images posted to Ocean’s Instagram Stories, and with whom he’s apparently friendly.

Blonde has been a notoriously difficult record to obtain on vinyl. Ocean sold limited quantities of the album as part of an exclusive Black Friday sale in 2016. Some fans who bought the album reported experiencing significant shipping delays at the time. Other Frank Ocean albums like Endless have also frustrated fans with delays.
