Life’s a beach for Frank Ocean. Fresh off his two Grammy wins, R&B’s golden child is packing his bags and heading to Bora Bora to record his next album.

“I’m 10, 11 songs into this next thing,” Ocean told BBC Radio 1’s Zane Lowe during his visit to the U.K. “It’s another cohesive thing, bordering on a concept record again.”

The album will pick up where 2012’s channel ORANGE left off. “At the end of channel ORANGE, there’s ‘Golden Girl’ and it’s this beach scene, and I kind of want to extend that feel into the next record all together, kinda make it that theme.”

When he returns from the U.K., he will continue his recording sessions on the island of Bora Bora. “I’m gonna take it all to the beach and work for a few weeks,” he said. “We’re gonna do that and see how it turns out.”

He recorded channel ORANGE cuts “Pyramids” and “Lost” at a rented house in Bel-Air. “It was so fly that I didn’t do anything. I only did two songs in a month-and-a-half,” he said. “If I get a ‘Pyramids’ or ‘Lost’ out of the situation, then it’s worth it.”

He also plans to hit the studio with Danger Mouse and is eyeing a tour for later this year. “I think it’ll be pretty sweet when I do.”
