Dev Hynes has announced the third Blood Orange is titled 'Freetown Sound' and is coming 'very soon'. Eeeee.

QUOTE
This is a 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. This is gonna sound terrifying, but there is a strong theme of Christianity on the record. When I was growing up, Christianity was drilled into my head so intensely, to the point where, as a child, I was meant to be left-handed but was forced to use my right instead. Left-handedness was seen as a sign of darkness. 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…and how eventually this somehow led to someone in a school telling me not to use my left hand. It’s been very interesting for me trying to understand and tie all of these things together. It’s been a way of working through it. There’s also a lot of stuff about race and specifically things that have happened to me.

Seriously can't wait for this. I liked 'Coastal Grooves' but 'Cupid Deluxe' was a whole other level for me.
One of my favourite albums ever.

Really excited for this, I've been revisiting Cupid Deluxe recently and it's still magnificent.

I am so ready for this. I can't believe it is coming up to three years since Cupid Deluxe and 'Chamakay'. I loved Coastal Grooves but I agree Cupid Deluxe was a major step up in quality. 'Chamakay', 'You're Not Good Enough' and 'Chosen' were major stand-outs.

I'm very excited for this album. It's upcoming release had completely passed me by until I saw Cremey's avatar and found this thread. laugh.gif I need another 'Chamakay' in my life to be honest.

"best to you" is f***ing amazing, and i need to like figure out a ranking but "augustine" and "juicy 1-4" are up there too.

it's also quite a lot to take in at first but i feel i'll truly love it months from now. and if anything, listening to cupid deluxe in the past few months has made me appreciate that album so much more than i did when it came out.

Can't get over how strong this album is.
I didn't think he'd be able to top 'Cupid Deluxe' and I know it's early days but I think he may well have just done that with this. Sublime.

not to be dramatic but this album feels like an antidote to this apocalyptic ass zeitgeist of ours, and i've listened to it nearly every day since it came out
