Dev Hynes a.k.a. Blood Orange is a musical chameleon. The progressive artist is stretching his talents to the classical realm on Fields, his second release of 2019.
Scheduled to arrive on October 11 via Cedille Records, Fields will consist of 13 songs composed by Orange himself. It will include arrangement by the Grammy-winning quartet Third Coast Percussion.
“This was the first time I’ve written music that I’ve never played, and I love that,” Orange said in a statement. “It’s something I’ve always been striving to get to. Seeing what Third Coast Percussion had done with these pieces was magical.”
Fields follows Orange’s inaugural mixtape Angel’s Pulse, which premiered in July. The 14-track project features guest appearances by Justine Skye, Tinashe, Project Pat, and Gangsta Boo. Orange released an artsy video for “Benzo” with a cameo from nonconformist Ian Isiah.
