Frank Ocean’s albums to be analysed on acclaimed podcast Dissect

The award-winning Dissect podcast has announced that it’ll be delving into Frank Ocean’s Channel Orange and Blond over the course of its third season.

Host Col Cuchna spent hundreds of hours analysing Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp A Butterfly for the podcast’s first season, and Kanye West’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy for the second. Dissect will follow up with a six-episode mini series on Channel Orange and a full season for Blond.

“I have a soft spot for artists who use their platform to challenge and progress the art form, not rest on the success they’ve had in the past,” host Cole Cuchna said to Pigeons & Planes. “Kendrick Lamar, Kanye West, and Frank Ocean have all done that, and we absolutely need these types of artists in the world, especially when they have such a massive reach.”

He adds, “Frank Ocean has an incredibly interesting story. As I was researching his music and his background, I realised that his art and his personal actions move in parallel in pursuit of the same thing: truth and authenticity.”

Dissect has teamed up with Spotify to host its upcoming editions. Season three will premiere on 15 May.
