While Frank Ocean is still recovering from a vocal chord tear, his soothing voice graces us in a minute and half interlude on John Mayer’s new Paradise Valley album. Throughout the short track, Ocean paints a picture of serene nights at home and landscapes “so gorgeous that a grown man might cry.” His lyrics are bittersweet, while Mayer’s harmonies play softly in the background.
This isn’t the first time that the Ocean/Mayer duo has worked together. On Oceans debut album Channel Orange, Mayer was featured in a minute-long interlude called “White” showing off his guitar skills. He also appeared in Ocean’s “Pyramid” video for a quick guitar solo.
Paradise Valley is out and available on iTunes. Hopefully these two artists continue to dish out more music together in the future. We’ll keep our fingers crossed.
