Dev Hynes will embark on a Blood Orange North American tour during March 2020.
After another busy year in which, aside from productions, collaborations and directorials, he’s released the Blood Orange mixtape Angel’s Pulse and the classical album Fields, Hynes will play US shows in Okeechobee, FL; Atlanta, GA; Chicago, IL; Detroit, MI; Washington, DC and New York, NY, as well as one in Toronto.
“This mixing of roles and identities, weaving strains of hip-hop, r&b, soul and gently decaying tones never allows for a centre, but rather than explain the best way to understand the effect is on Gold Teeth, part Memphis rap via Tinashe and Three 6 Mafia’s Project Pat and Gangsta Boo, but before that it time slides ambiently, like the words have been superimposed, or separate tracks are playing simultaneously in different rooms,” we said of Angel’s Pulse.
“Whether any of this is helping Dev Hynes achieve the resolution so obviously lacking at the time Negro Swan was released is less than clear. But sometimes just continuously stepping forward is enough therapy – and Angel’s Pulse is a form of healing in itself.”
