Blood Orange Freetown Sound Out Now

Blood Orange Freetown Sound Out Now

Blood Orange’s highly anticipated new album, Freetown Sound, is out now. Written and produced by Hynes, and featuring musical contributions from Nelly Furtado, Carly Rae Jepsen, BEA1991, Debbie Harry, Adam Bainbridge (a.k.a. Kindness), Empress Of, Ian Isiah, Kelsey Lu, Jason Arce, Ava Raiin, Aaron Maine (a.k.a. Porches), Bryndon Cook (a.k.a. Starchild) and Patrick Wimberly, Freetown Sound is a tour de force, a confluence of Hynes’ past, present, and future that melds his influences with his own established musical voice.

“A committed cultural citizen, he stands out among the New York musicians of his generation. Mr. Hynes’s modern bohemianism feels like a holdover from an earlier time, more reminiscent of the uptown-downtown cross-pollination of the early 1980s, or how Lou Reed bridged proto-punk and art, or how Warhol’s Factory took in the outcasts from all the city’s scenes and gave them a home. His cultural life is broad and fluid, a throwback to when New York culture was less professionalised, more intimate and less segmented. “Freetown Sound” suggests a conversation with the city, navigating a host of styles while weaving in vocal snippets of local characters, from KRS-One to Ta-Nehisi Coates.” - NEW YORK TIMES
