Blood Orange Announces New Album Negro Swan

Blood Orange will return with his fourth album, Negro Swan, set to be released on Domino Records on August 24, 2018. His first since his 2016 effort Freetown Sound, the record will offer what Hynes described in a statement as 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.” He added, “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.”

You can pre-order the album
