    Dev Hynes' project Blood Orange surprise-released his latest album today, Freetown Sound. The record was scheduled to come out on Friday via Dominos, but after its surprise release, it can now be stream or downloaded on a variety of platforms, including Spotify and Apple Music.

    Freetown Sound is the third album Dev Hynes has released under the moniker Blood Orange and it the follow up to 2013's Cupid Deluxe. The singer said about the new record, "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," reports Consequence of Sound.

    Hynes collaborates with a number of artists on the album, including Nelly Furtado, Carly Rae Jepsen, BEA1991, Debbie Harry, Adam Bainbridge (a.k.a. Kindness), Empress Of, Ian Isiah, Kelsey Lu, Jason Arce, Ava Raiin, Aaron Maine (a.k.a. Porches), Bryndon Cook (a.k.a. Starchild) and Patrick Wimberly.
