Devonté Hynes has released fantastic albums that can be labeled somewhere between dreampop and r’n’b under his moniker Blood Orange since 2011. His most recent album „Freetown Sound“ – released in 2016 came nothing short of a masterpiece, where everything was just perfectly done – the artwork, the emphatic lyrics, the songwriting and of course the perfectly tuned produced sound. Hynes combines the personal and poltical issues as he closes in on the „Black Lives Matter“ movement. And while his former projects Test Icles and Lightspeed Champion where fueled by rage and wit, Blood Orange stays very intimate despite or maybe because of the shimmering sound.
But in recent years he also made a name of himself as a producer for the likes of Solange, Florence And The Machine or Carly Rae Jepsen.
Now a new record is announced to come out in 2018. It seems very likely that he will play some new tunes in November.
