Frank Ocean has shared a revealing window into the electronic tracks bumping around in the office afterhours.

In the third episode of Ocean's "Homer Radio" show on Apple Music 1, the elusive artist leaned heavily into techno and house music. The mix features a myriad of electronic tracks by artists such as Green Velvet, who have long waved the flag of the underground dance music scene.

The curated offering is particularly notable after comments made in 2019 by Ocean, who said his next album was likely to embrace the influences of club music’s cultural epicenters.

"I’ve been interested in club, and the many different iterations of nightlife for music and songs," he said at the time. "And so the things I look at now have a lot to do with those scenes: Detroit, Chicago, techno, house, French electronic."

All three Swedish House Mafia members shared The Weeknd's teaser of the track, “Nothing Is Lost (You Give me Strength)."

There's certainly ample pretext for the move as the worlds of R&B, hip-hop and electronic music have become more intertwined than ever in recent memory. Drake, Beyoncé, Megan Thee Stallion and more have embraced the sounds of the late-night hours.

Many will also recall when The Weeknd famously took to his radio show, "Memento Mori," to give a preview of the influences that inspired his Dawn FM album. Needless to say, it seems there's a Frank Ocean club era on the horizon.

It’s been six years since his last studio album, 2016's influential Blonde. But with a headlining performance at Coachella already confirmed for 2023, it's not out of the question that fans could get their hands on his third LP before then.
