After two years, Blood Orange - Dev Hynes - releases his fourth album, Negro Swan.
Coming in at 16 tracks, Blood Orange recruits features from A$AP Rocky, Janet Mock, Steve Lacy, and more. He took to Hypebeast to discuss his new album.
“My newest album is an exploration into my own and many types of black depression, an honest look at the corners of black existence, and the ongoing anxieties of queer/people of color. A reach back into childhood and modern traumas, and the things we do to get through it all. The underlying thread through each piece on the album is the idea of hope, and the lights we can try to turn on within ourselves with a hopefully positive outcome of helping others out of their darkness.”
