Watch: Frank Ocean - Pyramids (NSFW)

Frank Ocean has just shared the video for one of the stand-out tracks on his album, Channel Orange.

"Pyramids" is normally an epic 9-minute journey through a love affair on the run, via imagery from ancient Egypt and many a delicious key change. 

In this video version Ocean and co. have cut the length down while slipping in a solo from John Mayer (to add to his appearance on smooth guitar number "White" on the album) and added all sorts of awesome visuals. If you haven't already given this album a go, I'd highly recommend it. Beyond all the 'is he, isn't he?' hype surrounding Ocean's sexuality after he published this blog post, he is quite simply a gifted songwriter with a great ear for melodic hooks and the power of repetition in pop formats.
