Frank Ocean - Pyramids

Bråvalla festival is now over. To sum it all up, it was a nice festival, though it was a bit messy in between, but such one can expect when a new festival is to be built up on a new ground, but all issues got resolved in the end and all the bands could step up and play their songs to audience's cheers.

This year I was a bit of a handyman during this festival that changed the role each other day, started with "Steel", ie stage structures, then became the "production" that is, sound and light, the gig day, I was assistant stage manager at the Green stage and finished with a bit of truck driving on stage shredding. Now I'm finally at home, a little worn, but happy nonetheless.

Here are some pictures.

Christopher Francis Ocean (born Christopher Breaux; October 28, 1987), better known by his stage name Frank Ocean, is an American singer-songwriter from New Orleans, Louisiana. Ocean started his career as a ghostwriter for artists such as Brandy, Justin Bieber, and John Legend. In 2010, he became a member of alternative hip hop collective OFWGKTA, and his debut mixtape, Nostalgia, Ultra, was released the following year to critical acclaim. The singles "Novacane" and "Swim Good" both achieved chart success. The mixtape gained the interest of recording artists such as Kanye West, Beyoncé Knowles and Jay-Z, and he consequently appeared on West and Jay-Z's Watch the Throne album.

Todays tune "Pyramids" is a song released as the second single from his debut studio album Channel Orange (2012). The song was written by Ocean and produced by Malay & Om'Mas Keith. The track features an uncredited guitar solo from recording artist John Mayer. On June 7, 2012, Ocean posted a small teaser video featuring a snippet of the song onto his tumblr account, and released the full, nearly 10 minute song later that day onto his official SoundCloud account. The song explores a narrative of a pimp falling in love with one of his clients. The track lyrically contains several extended metaphors referencing Cleopatra, pyramids, and strip clubs. The song received highly positive reviews and was called epic in nature by several publications, who praised the ambition and scope of the track's length, along with the lyrical merit.

The song was featured in a teaser for Ocean's upcoming album and was released with a cover featured The Simpsons style characters. The music video was directed by Nabil Elderkin and featured an orange car with an atmospheric background. The song has since debuted on the UK R&B Chart at number 31. The track has been featured during television promos for Channel Orange. Ocean performed "Pyramids" during his Channel Orange tour through North America.
