Frank Ocean has given us his first release of 2018, and it’s absolutely stunning. Listen to him cover ‘Moon River’ — and see the best reactions from celebs and fans — right here!
Frank Ocean, 30, surprised fans with a dreamy cover of “Moon River” on Feb. 15, doing the classic tune more than a little justice. The song originally appeared in the iconic 1961 movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and was sung by Audrey Hepburn! Listen to Frank’s beautiful version of the track above and try to keep the tears from flowing.
Pretty much everyone is freaking out over the cover. “johnny mercer lyrics + frank ocean’s voice 💔💔💔💔 ,” Paramore‘s Haley Williams tweeted. “The cover I never knew I really needed,” Kacey Musgraves gushed.
Some fans can barely handle Frank’s cover! “Frank Ocean covered Johnny Mercer’s (Breakfast at Tiffany’s) “Moon River” and my heart just exploded tears of happiness,” one fan wrote. “MOON RIVER FILLED WITH MY TEARS THANK YOU,” another commented on YouTube.
Fans have been patiently waiting for Frank to announce his next move. We haven’t seen a full release from him since August 2016, when he released his sophomore album Blonde, and there’s been dead silence since then! Hopefully he’s getting ready for a new era.

OUT OF NOWHERE Frank drops a new track? It’s amazing. My friend and I both separately thought it sounded like a 2018 version of Wise Man, which is one of my favorite songs by him, so this is great. Would love to see him keep exploring this kinda guitar sound with complex vocal layering. #frankocean #moonriver #blonded #blonde #channelorange
