Devonté Hynes releases new Blood Orange songs 'Charcoal Baby' and 'Jewelry'.

Devonté Hynes has shared the first two songs/videos from his forthcoming fourth album as Blood Orange, 'Negro Swan', which will be released next month on August 24th.

About his upcoming album, Hynes says: "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.  A reach back into childhood and modern traumas, and the things we do to get through it all.  The underlying thread through each piece on the album is the idea of HOPE, and the lights we can try to turn on within ourselves with a hopefully positive outcome of helping others out of their darkness."
