Frank Ocean has recorded his new album at Abbey Road Studios.
Pianist Christophe Chassol revealed he worked with the 27-year-old singer at the iconic London studios on the making of his second album, 'Boys Don't Cry', which is expected to be released in July.
He revealed: ''Ocean invited me to Abbey Road to record on his album.''
The French musician continued to praise the 'Thinkin' Bout You' hitmaker and his quirky way of creating music, explaining he uses images and art to inspire himself while in the studio.
He explained: ''The guy is smart. He's really smart. The way he works in the studio is really cool. He has a printer, he has a lot of pictures of architecture, contemporary art, a lot of pictures of different kinds of things. So we start to work on a track and he says, this track is this - that car that you can see.
''I've never worked with that much money in music. It's good sometimes to have money, because you can try things.''
And he continued to reveal acclaimed producer Rick Rubin - who has worked with acts including Adele, Jay Z and Mick Jagger in the past - has also been instrumental in developing the forthcoming record, although Christophe didn't recognise the famed musician until he had left the studio.
Speaking on BBC Radio 6 Music, he added: ''At some point, a guy came into the studio, a guy with a long beard. We start talking and then he leaves and they tell me it's Rick Rubin! I didn't know the guy! Sometimes I'm the only one who doesn't know the things.''
