Always one to keep us guessing, Frank Ocean unexpectedly dropped a brand new song late last night on his Blonded channel, giving new meaning to the last-minute Valentine’s Day gift. To keep things romantic, the soulful artist delivered a cover of the Oscar-winning cinematic classic “Moon River,” penned by Henry Mancini and most famously sung by Audrey Hepburn in the iconic film Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

As to be expected, the VMAN39 interviewer put his signature touch on the ‘60s classic, stripping it down to a simple bass line and lo-fi fuzzy synths that his yearning vocals effortlessly glide over. In classic Frank fashion, it’s a surprising move that still makes plenty of sense within the fascinating world of Frank Ocean. Listen to the swoon-worthy cover below.
