Dev Hynes — or Blood Orange as most of us know him — has just broken down his forthcoming studio album Freetown Sound. Releasing an official statement about his anticipated new LP, Hynes has revealed the message and narrative that ties his upcoming record together. Dev Hynes writes:

I have just finished making an album about my life, my upbringing, being black in England, being black in America…my movement to this country at the age of 21, the same age that my mother moved from Guyana to London, and my father from Sierra Leone to London. Freetown Sound, the name of my album, is taken from Freetown where my father was born.

He also shared a trailer in support of the album and announced that the project will officially drop on July 1 via Domino. You can watch the trailer for Freetown Sound above.
