More R&B goodness is coming to bless our summer. This time around, we have Dev Hynes, also known as Blood Orange, to thank for it.
With his latest body of work coming in the form of 2018’s Negro Swan, Blood Orange is in mixtape mode with the announcement of Angel’s Pulse. Having worked with artists like Solange Knowles, A$AP Rocky, Steve Lacy of The Internet and many more, Blood Orange’s touch on today’s music scene does not go unnoticed.
Releasing the Angel’s Pulse project this Friday, July 12, via Domino, Dev Hynes makes not of creating the entire project by himself.
“My new record is called “Angel’s Pulse” & I performed, produced and mixed the entire thing myself. I’m calling it a mixtape.
I have a habit through the years of making records that I just give to friends, or on tape to people on the street, or no one. Usually this material is made directly after the album I’ve just put out. Somewhat of an epilogue to the thing I’ve made before. This time.. I decided to release it.
I put as much work and care into it as I do with the albums I’ve released, but for some reason trained myself into not releasing things the rate at which I make them. I’m older now though, and life is unpredictable and terrifying… so here you go mates.
Hope you enjoy. Catch you soon.
Devonté aka Blood Orange.”
An innovative soul, we can’t wait to hear just what Blood Orange has cooked up on his forthcoming mixtape. Stay tuned for the accompanying tracklist.
