Track of the Day: 'Sweet Life' by Frank Ocean

The second track to escape from his forthcoming 'Channel Orange' album, this is much more conventional than the previous 'Pyramids'. Channelling John Legend and Marvin Gaye, this is a classic-sounding soul tune. Produced by Pharrell Williams from N.E.R.D it's, as you might expect, an ode to how good life is and how you should enjoy what you've got - "Why see the world when you've got the beach?". Given Ocean's statement about his sexuality this week, and the positive way it's been received, I imagine life is pretty sweet for him right now.

If you missed 'Pyramids' when it came out you can also grab that below.
