Blood Orange has shared two new songs to mark Black History Month. Dev Hynes released both ’Christopher & 6th’ and ‘June 12th’ with an accompanying Instagram post reading “U must luv yourself. Happy Black History Month. (All year)”
He also confirmed in the same post that the two tracks are stand-alone releases, and have nothing to do with a new Blood Orange album. Late last year Hynes said that his unannounced new record - reportedly exploring his childhood in Essex - is “78% done”. Very precise.
Listen to both new songs below.
