** He was set to headline at Coachella in 2020, which stoked rumors of an upcoming album. He stated in interviews that he was busy traveling to different cities and working with different producers on new work, and was taking influence from French electronic music and Detroit and Chicago house. The release of tracks ''DHL'' and ''In My Room'' in fall 2019 and ''Cayendo'' and ''Dear April'' in March 2020 had people hyped for a new album. However, the UsefulNotes/Covid19Pandemic caused Coachella to be moved and then cancelled as well as Frank supposedly having to stop production of his album due to his anti-internet production style requiring him to move to various cities. His younger brother Ryan's death in August 2020 was the final nail in the coffin, as many fans quickly assumed that he would cease work for a prolonged period of time.
