Frank Ocean | Moon River | Single Review
Record Label: Def Jam Records
Frank Ocean’s newest single covers the classic song “Moon River” by Johnny Mercer and Henry Mancini. Despite this song being remade several times, a completely unique take on the original is still possible. This slow and relaxing cover utilizes Ocean’s calming voice to keep the nostalgia of the original track. By replacing the piano with guitar chords, a picture of the older song and its simpler times are brought to the forefront of the mind. The simplicity of the guitar, vocals, and synthesizer easily creates a calming atmosphere around the listener. Soft strums and the inviting tone of the track gives it good vibes.
