Last year we were enthralled by the sounds that Blood Orange offered up on his full length Negro Swan. Not one to sit still for long, it seems Dev Hynes is ready to show hi hand on what’s next. With a new mixtape announced as a digital release this Friday, Angel’s Pulse will be what Hynes offers up as his next release.
Hynes offered the following on what to expect for the release.
“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.”
The mixtape will be made available through Domino Records to stream on all platforms July 12 or it can be purchased from all digital outlets as well. Blood Orange will be on tour beginning July 12 at North Sea Jazz Festival in Rotterdam, NL until October 26 at NRG Arena in Houston, TX. A complete listing of his tour dates can be accessed here.
