We're not gonna lie -- the wait for Ocean's new music has not been easy.

The groundbreaking Channel Orange earned Ocean the GRAMMY for Best Urban Contemporary Album (plus, an Album of the Year nod), and established the breakout artist as one of this generation's premiere voices in R&B.


Channel Orange
was also deeply personal, arriving shortly after Ocean had penned an open letter candidly addressing his sexuality.

But after having arguably the biggest year in music, Ocean, for the most part, went radio silent. He announced work on a new album in 2013, then gave few updates until April 2014. The record was scheduled to be released in July 2015, but when that date passed, fans were left to wonder if we'd ever hear his sophomore effort.

After even more delays earlier this month, Ocean finally delivered with Endless, featuring collaborations with James Blake, Jazmine Sullivan, Sampha, and Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood.

The closing credits of the visual release also revealed that one of Endless' tracks, "At Your Best (You Are Love)," was recorded at the iconic Abbey Road Studios.
