It was widely reported that Frank Ocean had written a new song for Quentin Tarantino’s latest badass flick Django Unchained, and it was equally as widely reported that the director had decided to leave the song out of the movie.
Tarantino explains why, saying:
“Frank Ocean wrote a fantastic ballad that was truly lovely and poetic in every way, there just wasn’t a scene for it. I could have thrown it in quickly just to have it, but that’s not why he wrote it and not his intention. So I didn’t want to cheapen his effort. But, the song is fantastic, and when Frank decides to unleash it on the public, they’ll realize it then.”
He’s right, it is a fantastic song, and Frank took to his Tumblr page last night to let the rest of the world listen to its beauty. It’s called “Wiseman”, apt for this time of year, and you can listen to it below (and check out the lyrics over here).
