Hynes spoke on the album's creation via a press release from his label:

"I have just finished making an album about my life, my upbringing, being black in England, being black in America...my movement to this country at the age of 21, the same age that my mother moved from Guyana to London, and my father from Sierra Leone to London. Freetown Sound, the name of my album, is taken from Freetown where my father was born."

You can pre-order the record from Domino here and reread Blood Orange's FADER cover story here.
