Listen to Blood Orange’s latest mixtape Angel’s Pulse

Arca, Tinashe, Kelsey Lu, and BROCKHAMPTON’s Joba feature on Dev Hyne’s Negro Swan ‘epilogue’

Blood Orange, AKA Dev Hynes, has released his informal follow-up to last year’s celebrated Negro Swan, a new mixtape titled Angel’s Pulse. Deliberately described by the artist as a ‘mixtape’ and not an album, Hynes has performed, produced, and mixed the entire collection of songs solo.

The collection from the British, New York-based musician is 14 tracks long, and features contributions from Arca, Kelsey Lu, BROCKHAMPTON’s Joba, Tinashe, Justine Skye, Toro Y Moi, Ian Isiah, and more.

Calling the record an “epilogue” to what he did previously with Negro Swan, released almost exactly a year ago, Hynes added in a statement: “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.” 

Earlier this week, Hynes played a new track he wrote the previous month at an intimate party in the newly-opened Standard hotel, London, with help from album collaborator Ian Isiah, and debuted “Baby Florence” from the mixtape on his special NTS takeover.
