Blood Orange, a.k.a. Dev Hynes, treated fans with the release of his Freetown Sound album three days early! The musician was meant to drop his third studio album on July 1 via Domino Records, but you can now stream it via Spotify below:
The 17-track album features a handful of exciting collaborations with fellow artists including Nelly Furtado, Empress Of, Carly Rae Jepsen, Debbie Harry, Vince Staples, Starchild, De La Soul, Ian Isiah and The Atlantic national correspondent Ta-Nehisi Coates.
