No guarantees of second Ocean album

No guarantees of second Ocean album

Frank Ocean may not make another album.

The singer has received huge critical acclaim for his debut 'Channel Orange' earlier this year, but as he enjoys the process of telling stories so much his next project may be to write a book rather than producing more music.

He told The Guardian newspaper: "Some people focus more on sonics. Some people focus more on story. I focus on both sonics and story, but music sometimes, just music itself, can turn into more of a maths problem.

"Storytelling is the more interesting part about making music for me, or making albums and songs and stuff. So much so that I might not make another album. I must write a novel instead. I don't know!"

When pressed further about his only record possibly being his last, he added: "It could be.

"It could be it if I flew next week and my plane crashed. It could be it if somebody walked along and shot me for my bracelet or something. It could always be it."
