Frank Ocean took home two Grammy Awards earlier this month and now, the singer has revealed his progress on a new album. According to a recent interview with Zane Lowe at BBC Radio 1, he’s “like 10, 11 songs” into the follow-up to ‘Channel Orange.’

Although the new record doesn’t have a title yet, Ocean hinted that it might pick up where ‘Orange’ left off. “There’s ‘Golden Girl’ and it’s this beach scene and I kind of want to extend that feeling into the next record,” he explained, referencing the final track of his first full-length disc. “I’m going to Bora Bora when I get back … I put a studio in my house, but it’s all in road cases. I’m going to take it all to Bora Bora and work for a few weeks.”

Ocean mentioned working with Pharrell Williams on new material as well as teaming up with Danger Mouse once he gets back from his tropical getaway. He also shed some light on his recording process. “You have to live,” he said. “I never could really work well just being in the studio day-after-day, every day. I can go in the studio for months straight, but I gotta spend some months out in the world.”
