Black Hole Rainbow is the first studio album by American soul singer-songwriter Devon Gilfillian through Capitol Records.[4] The album was released January 10, 2020,[5] and was produced by Shawn Everett, with additional album production from Ariel Rechtshaid[6] and was co-written by Jamie Lidell.[7]

Background[edit]

On November 7, 2019 the artist released the single "Unchained", and announced that his upcoming debut studio album would be released January 10, 2020. According to Gilfillian, the upcoming single "Unchained" is "an anthem for anyone that has been set back by unfair/unjust challenges in their life. It's a song about empowering yourself to become your greatest potential no matter what tries to stand in your way".[5] The single "Unchained" was originally inspired by the story of Brian Banks, an African American man wrongly accused of rape. The music video for "Unchained"[8] was released on January 10, 2020, and features Gilfillian's brother Ryan Gilfillian, who was paralyzed from the waist down in a car accident.[9]

Recorded primarily live at Electro-Vox Recording Studios in Los Angeles on vintage gear[10], then as Gilfillian puts it "we took the tape to vinyl, sampled the vinyl and uploaded it to ProTools. Then, we put layers of vocals, percussion and crazy sounds on. We got to capture both the old and the new recording technologies"[3]
