Frank Ocean fans aren’t happy: the singer promised a new album by the end of July yet nothing has appeared and August has begun.

Every time there’s even a snippet of news about the rumoured Boys Don’t Cry album people lose it, so when Ocean’s younger brother, Ryan Breaux, said that the album had dropped onto iTunes and he had the link in his Instagram bio, everyone got very, very excited.

“It’s finally out! Link in my bio,” reads the caption, put next to the photo of Ocean that started this whole fiasco.

Unfortunately, the iTunes link didn’t go to a new album, it ended up going to the page for the infamous Rick Astley 'Never Gonna Give You Up' music video.

Yes, we all just got ‘Rickrolled’ by Frank Ocean’s younger brother, and yes, everyone is still angry they don’t have a new album yet.

For those who don't spend their lives trawling YouTube comments or Reddit forums being 'Rickrolled' is when someone misleads you into watching Rick Astley's music video. Hilarious, right?

Ocean has been leading on fans for months now, having announced in April that a new album, accompanied by a magazine, would be out in July.

Rumours circulated that the album would be released on the 19th, 21st and 23rd of the month, but we are yet to have any new music.
