Taking a page out of Kanye West’s famous handwritten tracklist release strategy, Dev Hynes shared the tracklisting of Blood Orange’s next album Freetown Sound today by scribbling on a piece of paper and sending it to the world through social media.
In addition to the titles of seventeen songs, the paper also reveals several mysterious hints at the album’s sound including “Dolphy Vibes,” “New York City,” “1991,” and “Get Empress On The Phone.” So, will the album sound like an early ’90s NYC soundtrack for dolphins featuring Empress Of? I guess we’ll have to wait until July 1 to find out.
Like Kanye, his penmanship could use some work: the notation is a bit difficult to decipher. Of course, that makes the detective work even more fun. Hynes acknowledged this with the following tweet: “I have the worst writing in the game smh lol.” Piece the clues together below.
