Ocean’s Blond and Endless collaborator Billy Spaceman Patterson told Pitchfork “There’s a lot of stuff that we recorded that I still haven’t heard yet.”
Billy ‘Spaceman’ Patterson, a collaborator on Frank Ocean’s recent duo of albums Blond and Endless, has given an interview to Pitchfork explaining what it was like to work with the enigmatic singer.
“We had like 14-hour, 15-, 16-hour sessions. We’re creating continually. So something may happen, and [Frank might] say, ‘Oh, that’s nice, let’s try this here.’ So it winds up becoming a thing, and then I wind up doing a lot of different kind of textures.” He told the website, “It wasn’t defined: ‘OK, this is Endless,’ or ‘this is Boys Don’t Cry or Blonde’ or whatever the working titles were. I call it just one giant, long record.”
During the interview Spaceman also revealed that he recorded a lot of music with Frank which hasn’t surfaced on either album. He said: “There’s a lot of stuff that we recorded that I still haven’t heard yet.”
