Blood Orange: Freetown Sound

It works.

Opening with a Lemonade-inducing feminist speech that could raise the arm hairs of anyone with a soul, Dev Hynes delivers the most surprising album of 2016.

And the revelations don’t stop there – Hynes, Debbie Harry and Nelly Furtado? Well I’m here to tell you it works.

Hynes’ long-lost punk band past finds rebirth with Blondie’s frontwoman, while Furtado’s cameo is an indie pop dream.

This isn’t a feminist album, however, this IS an album that champions the other.

Unapologetically political, Hynes softly opines, “All I ever wanted was a chance for myself.” And anyone who has experienced life on the outside, feels their heart gently break.
