Of Course Frank Ocean Spent His Valentine’s Day Covering Audrey Hepburn’s ‘Moon River’

Beautiful.

*Gazes up longingly into the camera.* *Bats eyelashes.* Oh, hiiii. So sorry, didn’t see you there. Was just busy getting swept up in yet another surprise Frank Ocean cover. See, while you were off enjoying your Valentine’s Day nightcap, Frank was up burning the midnight oil to bring you his take on an Audrey Hepburn classic. In the wee hours of the night, he shared on his Tumblr a gentle, engrossing cover of “Moon River,” the Oscar-winning song from Breakfast at Tiffany’s, sung in the film by Hepburn as she plucked away at a guitar on her fire escape. Ocean’s version adds a few more bells and whistles (technology and all), but remains faithful to the stunning, quiet simplicity of the original. Wherever you’re going, Frank, take us with you.
