Blood Orange has announced a new mixtape. It’s called Angel’s Pulse and it comes out this Friday, July 12 (via Domino). Check out the cover artwork below. In a statement, Devonté Hynes said:
My new record is called Angel’s Pulse & I performed, produced, and
mixed the entire thing myself. I’m calling it a mixtape. 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
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.
Hope you enjoy. Catch you soon.
Devonté aka Blood Orange.
