For Dev Hynes, Every Sound is a Color

Nov 21, 2013

Devonté Hynes has recorded a punk album, a folk-pop-country album, and his new record features a mix of synth pop. NPR's Melissa Block talks with Hynes about his musical exploration and living with synesthesia, a neurological condition that links the senses — for Hynes, every sound he hears is associated with a color.

Dev Hynes recorded his new album, 'Cupid Deluxe,' as Blood Orange.
