Blood Orange’s Angel’s Pulse (Album) has arrived. Available for download and streaming, the new music project lists 14 tracks. Angel’s Pulse, which Hynes is calling a mixtape, is intended as a sort of postscript for Negro Swan. With guest music features from Toro Y Moi, Kelsey Lu, Ian Isiah, Justine Skye, Project Pat, Gangsta Boo, Tinashe, Porches, BennY RevivaL, Arca, and Joba, the new body of work is a follow up to Negro Swan project.
Blood Orange elaborates on the new album:
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 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.
Hope you enjoy. Catch you soon.
Devonté aka Blood Orange.
