Out of nowhere, Dev Hynes has dropped a brand new Blood Orange track. Quietly uploading the song to SoundCloud with a rough title, "Boweryldn Edit 6 15 September" breaks his post-Freetown Sound silence. Hopefully this is an indication that we'll be hearing more from him soon, but judging from the low-key release of this track, it's unlikely this will amount to much more than a b-side thrown online for fun.
However, we should definitely still be thankful, for the track is peak Blood Orange. The foggy song features a number of his signature elements, but it gets more adventurous in its second half. If this is the direction we can expect him to go in next, then we're very excited to hear more. If it's just a throwaway, though, we're happy we still get to hear it at all.
Listen to the sound below.
