It’s Officially Blood Orange Season

Singer Blood Orange released two new singles off his upcoming album Negro Swan. It's officially Blood Orange season.

It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of singer and multi-instrumentalist Dev Hynes, who performs under the name Blood Orange. His last album, Freetown Sound, set a new standard for his already amazing career. Instead of focusing on love ballads with a coastal flair, he shifted his attention to topics such as race, sexuality, and identity. Those love ballads didn’t go away, they just took on a different meaning.

Recently, Blood Orange announced his upcoming album by releasing two new videos. “Charcoal Baby” shows African/black family dynamics and “Jewelry” features Janet Mock. Both singles are really good so it looks like its Blood Orange season once again.

 

 

Check out his new album, Negro Swan, on August 24th.
