Dev Hynes directs the dreamy video for Mykki Blanco’s ‘It’s Not My Choice’

The Broken Hearts & Beauty Sleep track also features vocals from Blood Orange

Mykki Blanco has shared the video for “It’s Not My Choice”, a single from their recent mini-album — and first longform record since 2016’s Mykki — titled Broken Hearts & Beauty Sleep.

As well as contributing vocals to the track itself (as Blood Orange) Dev Hynes has directed the new visual, which sees the pair hanging out with friends in a lush, dreamlike garden.

“Creating with Dev Hynes as director of this video was as effortless as creating the song together,” says Blanco in a statement on its release. “I have long admired that Dev has never compromised along his musical trajectory, offering us songs that play between disciplines and genres at the wave of a hand.”

“This video was carefree and captured what I feel to be some quintessential summer moments,” they add. “Being with friends, being in nature, and having a sense of poise no matter your own personal thunderstorm.”
