Blood Orange has released a fancy new video for ‘Benzo’.
Directed by Dev Hynes himself, and produced by Elara Pictures, it’s a cut from his just-dropped mixtape ’Angel's Pulse’, which came out last Friday (12th July).
“My new record is called 'Angel’s Pulse' and I performed, produced and mixed the entire thing myself. I’m calling it a mixtape,” he explains.
“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.”
Blood Orange will be playing a few shows in the US later this year, including dates opening for Tyler, The Creator in October.
