Freetown Sound – Blood Orange

Freetown Sound is the third album from Blood Orange (aka Dev Hynes). Hynes had this to say of his upcoming album:

This is a very layered and very deep record for me. There’s a lot of meaning behind all of the choices I’ve made for this one. It looks into my childhood and examines who I am at this point in my life. There are so many crazy layers to it that it’s actually quite hard to talk about it, but the record is very reflective of how my brain works. It talks a lot about sexuality and displacement and life in the city—so it’s definitely very personal, but in doing that I think it’s probably the most relatable thing I’ve ever done. Freetown Sound also has a lot to do with Freetown—the capital of Sierra Leone—which is where my dad is from. The record addresses the way Christianity was brought to West Africa and the way black households held on very tightly to Christianity because it was this beacon of hope

blackSUMMERS’night – Maxwell

blackSUMMERS’night is the first release from Maxwell in nearly 7 years, the follow up to the similarly named 2009 release, BLACKsummers’night. The project was announced with the release of the single “Lake By The Ocean” and a previously live Q/A with the artist on his Facebook. Maxwell had the following to say regarding his new album:

I’m at the point with the album where it’s just like, with the passing of my cousin, and my grandmother, me turning 40, and being 42 now, and having a whole sort of new milestone in my life, where a lot of my mind is grown up, and I’m thinking in terms of the next 10 years.I’m just hyped. We have two and a half years of just consistent, around the world, going everywhere, traveling, doing shows…It’s funny, because I remember reading Marvin Gaye’s biography when I was, like, 17 years old, Divided Soul. He always said something that really stuck with me. He said, ‘You can rush to fail, or you can take your time to succeed.’ I’m happy that I haven’t exhausted people’s visions to the point where they’ll never want to listen to me.
