But it probably won't be getting released...
King Krule

King Krule seemingly wrote music with Frank Ocean - however it's doubtful any of it will be released.

Speculation about a potential collaboration were sparked by an interview Frank Ocean gave to Radio 1 back in 2013, in which he revealed the two had been writing together.

Now, speaking to Pitchfork, King Krule has confirmed some writing sessions did take place, but Frank Ocean wasn't convinced by the final product.

"Frank was at my house, yeah," the London artist revealed. "His work rate’s crazy; he creates album after album. I don’t know what goes through his head. He’s a different kind of cat. He came down and he wanted me to do something for his record, but I don’t think he liked it."

It seems that King Krule's South London house is quite the hive of activity - Earl Sweatshirt also visited, and stayed for a month.

Giving the rapper some beats under his Edgar the Beatmaker alias, some of King Krule's productions ended up on 'Death Whistles'.

"It was probably like 5 in the morning," he said. "And we made this beat, (which) basically came out of the fact that he was like, ‘This beat’s trash.’ And he slowed it down, super. And he was like, ‘This is some good shit.’ (laughs) I was like, 'Aight.'"
