Devonté Hynes (AKA Blood Orange) has shared his original soundtrack for Gia Coppola’s latest film, Mainstream. Starring Andrew Garfield and Maya Hawke, the film also hit cinemas this week, premiering in the US on May 7.
“I love everything Dev makes,” says Coppola, in a statement via Milan Records. “For Mainstream, I felt he really tapped into the many emotions you weave through when trying to coexist in this new digital world, yet still keeping it classic.”
Entirely composed, performed, mixed, and produced by Hynes, the Mainstream score follows his previous collaboration on the filmmaker’s dreamy directorial debut from 2013, Palo Alto. Since then, Hynes has also sountracked Luca Guadagnino’s HBO series We Are Who We Are, as well as Melina Matsoukas’s debut film, Queen & Slim.
Hynes released his latest album as Blood Orange, titled Negro Swan, in 2018, followed in 2019 by the collaboration-filled mixtape Angel’s Pulse. The same year, he also debuted his first classical album, Fields, alongside the acclaimed ensemble Third Coast Percussions.
