After having announced a new Blood Orange‘s album earlier this year, and having shared its artwork, Dev Hynes finally disclosed details about his alter-ego’s third album, Freetown Sound.


Hynes just shared a trailer for the follow-up to the excellent Cupid Deluxe: the video features footages from various video-clips and interviews from other artists, creating an heavily NYC-influenced atmosphere. The end of the trailer also reveals the release date of his new project: July 1, via Domino.


In a press release, Hynes said about the album: “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”.


Watch the trailer for Freetown Sound below and get ready for some fresh and tasty blood oranges!

I speak as loud as the volume I listen to music, and this is probably symptomatic of my love for pop music: I love pop music because it is often unapologetically in-your-face, it shouts rather than tell, it drives you crazy. And after 21 years loving pop music, I think I’ve completely gone mad. It all started in 1997, when my mum bought me my first cassette: needless to say, it was ‘Barbie Girl’ by Aqua, and from that point on, it’s been a never-ending loving relationship between me and music. I study, work and live life part-time, and listen to music full-time.
