Call off the search party, Frank Ocean appears to have finally returned to music and is poised to release the new album we've craved for so long.

'Last night, at an unspecified location in New York City, Frank Ocean reportedly held a listening party for his highly-anticipated forthcoming album,' RapFav reported. 'Could this mean the album’s finally on the way?'

Snippets supposedly recorded at the party have found their way online and should be below (though they might get pulled)

The one above features what is unmistakably his voice, singing "I’ll be back before the street lights on, before the daylight's gone," followed by a really atmospheric synth line.
The snippet below is more rap-orientated:

Frank originally promised that the album, misreported as being called Boys Don't Cry (that's apparently the name of a zine he's working on), would be released in July 2015.
