"Thinking About You" crooner Frank Ocean has deleted his Twitter and Instagram accounts, seemingly in an attempt to focus his photography and writing to old fashioned camera films and notebooks.
In a blog post on his tumblr account, frankocean.tumblr.com, the singer discussed life on the road, writing in notebooks and his desire to go to Africa in between legs of his tour.
Read the full blog post from Ocean below:
"i've been meaning to write you more. different hotels every night aren't so bad really. in fact- all the moving house could inspire a photo series.. not for the gram, knowing me it's probably only for whoever controls my estate in the future and enthusiastically develops all the rolls of film i forgot to. i'm in belgium, just 7 concerts into a tour with an ambiguous ending. i'd tour for a year if it didn't interrupt my recording or my weekend driving. i really wanted to go to cairo in between europe and australia.. might let things settle some.. go to south africa instead and place some flowers on a gate for the president. for being epic and 94. i write on paper at night. my tour manager gave me a small powder blue book at the beginning of this run with gold embossed lettering on the cover that reads 'one line a day'.. it's easier than you'd think to narrow the entire cinema of your day into one sentence. i never read them back in the morning. whenever morning is.. even my macbook clock can't keep up. all the travel isn't in support of an album or anything like that really- past or ahead. there's no label or touring firm dollars involved. all pennies from my pocket. in support of some odd daydream. ops to photograph crowds and clouds from planes. contrast all the quiet with some noise. new noise and old noise..sober crowd, faaded crowd. all welcome."
He addresses the missing Instagram and Twitter directly and hints at a photo project that was too big for the social media platform.
Ocean is currently in the middle of his You're Not Dead European tour. He will take the stage tonight (July 6) in Rotselaar, Belgium. He will then head back to North America to headline Drake's OVOFest alongside James Blake in Toronto on Aug. 4.© 2019 Mstars News, All rights reserved. Do not reproduce without permission.
