Last month, Blood Orange shared a new video for ‘Better Than Me’ featuring Carly Rae Jepsen. The track is taken from Dev Hynes’ recent album ‘Freetown’ which was released last summer.

‘Freetown Sound’ was named after the capital of Sierra Leone, where Hynes’ father is from, and features a host of guests. These include Blondie singer Debbie Harry, Nelly Furtado, Empress Of, Bob Marley’s granddaughter Zuri Marley, Starchild, Bea1991, Ian Isiah, Ta-Nehisi C, Kelsey Lu and Ava Rain.

It followed 2013’s ‘Cupid Deluxe’ and was produced by Hynes.
