Today, producer, multi-instrumentalist, composer, songwriter and vocalistDevonté Hynes – aka Blood Orange – has released a video for the song “ChewingGum,” off his critically acclaimed new album Negro Swan, out now on Domino. The video, which was directed by Hynes, also features the song’s guest vocalist,A$AP Rocky.


The video release coincides with the physical release date of Negro Swan. The record is out today on vinyl, and can be purchased via all good record stores, or via the Domino Mart here.

Negro Swan, one of this year’s most lauded records, was written and produced by Hynes. Says Hynes:

“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. A reach back into childhood and modern traumas, and the things we do to get through it all. The underlying thread through each piece on the album is the idea of HOPE, and the lights we can try to turn on within ourselves with a hopefully positive outcome of helping others out of their darkness.”
