The digital release of Frank Ocean’s album channel ORANGE earlier this week excluded this collaboration with lead Wolf Tyler, the Creator. Instead the song, titled ‘End/Golden Girl’ will be included on the physical release on July 17th. The absence of this won’t make much of an impact on the LP either way – it’s not the strongest offering, especially in comparison to the rest of the album. It should have been better (production is the best thing about it), but I do quite like the idea of Tyler’s demonic switch up at the end given the context of a potentially large commercial audience. (Ocean’s set to shift around 110-125K digital copies this week and is expected to debut big on Billboard 200 next week).
Note: The track begins after the ‘End’ snippet, at 03:45.
