Taken from his highly anticipated new album ‘Negro Swan’, Blood Orange takes fans on a wild musical ride in the Crack Stevens—directed video “Charcoal Baby”. With a writing credit by Porches’ Aaron Maine and EVA spotting backing vocals on the track, the multi-faceted exploration of black emotions paints a stunning audio portrait of the complexities we all face.
“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,” Hynes said in a statement. “A reach back into childhood and modern traumas, and the things we do to get through it all.”
