On July 28, 2011 a song titled “Thinking About You” was leaked on the internet by Frank Ocean from his Tumblr blog, which later he deleted. It was later revealed the song was a reference track and written for Roc Nation artist Bridget Kelly for her debut studio album. Kelly who has performed an acoustic version of the song, retitled the song “Thinking About Forever”. However, on September 15, 2011, a music video directed by High 5 Collective for Ocean’s version was released, yet the song appeared on Bridget Kelly‘s debut EP Every Girl. His debut album is set for a release on Def Jam Records in Spring 2012. On March 8, 2012, a re-mastered version of “Thinking About You” leaked, intended to be a single. On April 5, Ocean released the cover art for his upcoming debut studio album’s lead single “Thinkin’ Bout You“, revealing the song would be released to digital retailers on April 10. “It succinctly defines me as an artist for where I am right now and that was the aim,” he said of the follow-up to the acclaimed Nostalgia, Ultra. “It’s about the stories. If I write 14 stories that I love, then the next step is to get the environment of music around it to best envelop the story and all kinds of sonic goodness.” In March 2012, Coldplay announced that Ocean would perform as an opening act for a number of shows on their European tour in July and August 2012.
