Hear Blood Orange’s ‘West Drive,’ a Gauzy ‘Cupid Deluxe’ B-Side
Friends' Samantha Urbani duets on one of a "million" unreleased cuts
Blood Orange is apparently sitting on a treasure trove of unreleased material that didn’t make the cut for his excellent outsider-R&B opus Cupid Deluxe. In sharing “West Drive (Profit Vocal Dub 2)” today on SoundCloud, Dev Hynes wrote, “There are literally 7 versions of this song. This is 1 of roughly a million cuts that didn’t make it onto the album.” Girlfriend and Friends singer Samatha Urbani reprises her role as go-to ladyvoice on the new one below, providing coos and moans that complement the gauzy, purple fuzz-funk soundscape.
