Singer Frank Ocean’s “Channel Orange” will arrive on iTunes early Tuesday morning, Billboard.com has confirmed. The early release of the album will be available exclusively from the iTunes store until its official July 17 launch.
The anticipated album will be his Def Jam bow after the 2011 release of “Nostalgia, Ultra,” a mixtape Ocean shared online himself after a period of label frustration.
The iTunes launch, due after midnight, is expected to be announced on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” on Monday night, where Ocean will join the Roots for his television performance debut.
While it’s too early to tell how well the album will sell in its first week, some industry sources suggest a top 10 debut on next week’s Billboard 200 chart is likely.
