“Freetown Sound” by Blood Orange

“Freetown Sound” by Blood Orange

So Dev Hynes aka Blood Orange has dropped his latest Album “Freetown Sound”, this being the third Album from his project Blood Orange. The 17 track Album contains vocals from the likes of those more well-known artist such as Debbie Harry, Nelly Furtado, Carly Rae Jepsen and others less well-known,  Empress Of and Kelsey Lu. Its common knowledge that Hynes prefers to work with those female vocalists and this new release illustrates this well.


A particular favourite of ours being “Better Than Me” which features vocals from Carly Rae Jepsen and “Better Numb” vocals from Kelsey Lu.
