7digital What we said: There are many themes running through Devonté Hynes’ sublime fourth album as Blood Orange, but one that especially stands out is the concept of family. Not in the traditional sense of parents, siblings et al, but instead the people we choose to surround ourselves with. Indeed, the collaborators that find themselves on this luxuriant release certainly feel at ease with one another in a familial way. There's Puff Daddy wanting to be vulnerable enough to truly love someone, writer Janet Mock’s spoken word interludes about finding spaces to be yourself in, and even subtle goofiness like The Internet’s Steve Lacey swapping instruments so he’s playing keys while Hynes plays bass on ‘Out of Your League’. In times of uncertainty and anxiety for minorities, this is a lush release channelling R&B, soul, jazz, hip-hop and synthpop to create something deliciously comforting.
