Blood Orange Releases Long-Awaited LP ‘Freetown Sound’ Early

+

Dev Hynes surprised fans with the release of his third Blood Orange album, Freetown Sound, three days early. Named after the birthplace of his father in Sierra Leone, this project explores pressing racial and gender issues, and features names like Carly Rae Jepsen, Ian Isiah, Vince Staples and Nelly Furtado.

“I have just finished making an album about my life, my upbringing, being black in England, being black in America…my movement to this country at the age of 21, the same age that my mother moved from Guyana to London, and my father from Sierra Leone to London,” Hynes offered.
