Blood Orange Negro SwanDevonté Hynes doesn’t take his responsibility as an artist of colour lightly; Negro Swan is a deep reflection on oppression.

Drawing upon his own experiences, along with the those of other people of colour and queer communities, Hynes brings an all-star cast to tell these stories, with songs featuring the likes of A$AP Rocky (Chewing Gum) and Puff Daddy (Hope), along with powerful spoken word interludes from transgender rights activist Janet Mock.

Negro Swan is a tender, beautifully meditative and confident masterpiece, that will make you remember that hope exists in a world that is unfair towards and unaccepting of marginalised humans.

Negro Swan is out August 24 via Domino.
