Frank Ocean released a song on Valentine’s Day and it’s an absolute heartbreaker. The artiste shared a multifaceted cover of Johnny Mercer’s 1961 hit Moon River, aka your mum’s favourite song, that is guaranteed to make you sob uncontrollably.

It’s hard to listen to these lyrics without thinking of a Breakfast at Tiffany’s era Audrey Hepburn staring wistfully out a window, but Frank manages to make the song his own. He layers multiple audio tracks over the top of each other to create a complex web of emotions on the track. Jump aboard the emotional rollercoaster below.
