Frank Ocean records at Abbey Road
26 May 2015 16:04
Frank Ocean visited London's iconic Abbey Road Studios to record his new album.
-
French pianist Christophe Chassol told BBC Radio 6 Music that he teamed up with the R&B star to work on material for the record.
-
Speaking about Ocean, he said: "The guy is smart. He's really smart. The way he works in the studio is really cool. He has a printer, he has a lot of pictures of architecture, contemporary art, a lot of pictures of different kinds of things.
-
"So we start to work on a track and he says, this track is this - that car that you can see. He makes me work on a song, and I'm like, 'Oh this sounds like Pino Donaggio's score for Blow Out, by Brian De Palma'.
-
"I start to work on a song and five minutes later on the ProTools screen you have the movie, the score, stretched to fit the song - just to try. I've never worked with that much money in music. It's good sometimes to have money, because you can try things."
