As previously reported, our Artist of the Year Frank Ocean penned a new song for Quentin Tarantino’s film Django Unchained. However, the
untitled ballad failed to make the final soundtrack, so tonight Frank let it loose on his Tumblr. He added, “django was ill without it.” Take a listen below.
Update: The song is called “Wiseman” — click here to see the lyrics.
Tarantino explained the song’s omission in an issued statement:
“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.”
