Negro Swan

Blood Orange 2018

by Blood Orange

Feature Records for the week beginning Mon 17 Sep 2018

This week's feature record comes from producer, multi-instrumentalist, composer, songwriter and vocalist Devonte Hynes with his fourth album as Blood Orange, Negro Swan.

Raised in England, Hynes started out as a teenage punk in the UK band Test Icicles before releasing two orchestral acoustic pop records as Lightspeed Champion. In 2011, he released Coastal Grooves, the first of three solo albums under the moniker Blood Orange. Hynes has been described as one of the foremost musical voices of his time, receiving comparisons to the likes of Kendrick Lamar and D’Angelo for his own searing and soothing personal document of life as a black man in America.

Written and produced by Hynes, he had this to say about Negro Swan:

“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.”
