Frank Ocean Talks About New Album, Sky Ferreira Cameos In DIIV Video, MIA Outs Copyats on Tumblr

Plus the Yeah Yeah Yeahs set to premiere new single.

Other people besides Rihanna are doing stuff in the world today! For example, Frank Ocean. He appeared on BBC Radio 1's Zane Lowe show and spoke about his new album, which he referred to as a "thing".

"I'm ten, eleven songs into this next thing," he said. "It's another cohesive thing, bordering on a concept record again. At the end of channel ORANGE, there's 'Golden Girl' and it's this beach scene, and I kind of wanted to extend that feel into the next record altogether, kind of make it that theme." 

He revealed he'll be going to Bora Bora to work on the record for a few weeks (tough life) and also mentioned wanting to collaborate with King Krule and Tame Impala, which would be AWESOME. Listen to the whole interview here.

Speaking of new records and people that rule, do you realise it has been four years since the Yeah Yeah Yeahs have released an album? Time flies when you're hanging out with David Lynch and making psycho operas. The new album Mosquito will be out on 16 April, and the band has announced that they'll be premiering the first single 'Sacrilege' also on Zane Lowe's BBC show at 2:30pm EST on 25 February. Who knows what to expect given the artwork (above).

In other news, DIIV has released the video for 'Wait' from Oshin. The video was directed by Oyster contributor Sandy Kim and stars fellow Oyster contributors Karley Sciortino and Petra Collins, as well as two other impossible babes who have both been featured in our pages, Ashley Smith and Sky Ferreira.

This is the glorious result of shooting on Super 8 and editing while stoned:

MIA has started a new "steal log" Tumblr where she'll be publicly documenting everyone who bites her steeze. Her first target is the Grammys. "MIA VS THE SYSTEM" she writes on the blog, saying that the set of Rihanna, Bruno Mars, Sting, and Damian and Ziggy Marley's performance during the Bob Marley tribute at this year's award show knocked off the set from her Sydney show at the Enmore last month. "My ideas came from life. My set was based on Tamil Hindu Temple. Not Bob Marley," she writes.
