EXCLUSIVE NEWS: Frank Ocean through with music?

Singer, Frank Ocean is considering retiring from music after just one studio album to focus on a career as a writer.

The star's debut Channel Orange has been one of the most acclaimed records of 2012, topping music journalists' polls and earning him a string of 2013 Grammy nominations.

But despite the success of his work, Ocean admits he may not return to the studio for a follow-up.

He tells Britain's Guardian newspaper, "Storytelling's a different thing. Like I said, it's the more interesting part about making music for me, or making albums and songs and stuff.

So much so that I might not make another album. I might just write a novel next. I don't know!

"The idea of recognizing your strengths and using them in as versatile a way as you can is cool to me.

I don't ever want to be caught up in a system of thinking I can do one thing cos that's just… telling yourself a lie. But I do like to sing. I play piano every day. I enjoy that."
