The female backing vocals on the song are EVA.
Negro Swan follows 2016’s Freetown Sound, which is out on August 24 via Domino. “My newest album is an exploration into my own and many types of black depression, an honest look at the corners of black existence, and the ongoing anxieties of queer/people of color,” Hynes said. “A reach back into childhood and modern traumas, and the things we do to get through it all.”
