The Times reports that the album will be an Apple Music exclusive and be coupled with a “major video,” and print publication (which will be sold at Apple Stores).

The artist stoked speculation early Monday morning when his official website was updated with a mysterious streaming video.

Ocean’s follow up to 2013’s GRAMMY winning Channel Orange is a long time coming. The album was originally slated to be released in July 2015.
