Blood Orange

Negro Swan (LP / 2018)

Domino (WIGLP421)

Devonte Hynes is back, and on his fourth LP as Blood Orange he’s spreading his wings and flying. Negro Swan sees Hynes going even deeper into his examinations and celebrations of blackness than he did on 2016’s superb Freetown Sound. That LP balanced gorgeous pop and righteous philosophy with aplomb. On Negro Swan, Hynes manages to recapture the magic. Still anchoring his sound in early 90’s r&b and funk, Hynes grows into his voice like never before here. Some of the singing is nothing short of majestic. His step into the big leagues is confirmed by a guestlist that includes Puff Daddy and A$AP Rocky.
