Blood Orange Shares Swirling Retro-Pop ‘Delancey’ Demo
Dev Hynes recorded the track only three days ago
Taking a break from his studio work with Carly Rae Jepsen (Yes, Dev Hynes will be featured on the “Call Me Maybe” singer’s upcoming LP), Blood Orange has just dropped a new demo on Soundcloud called “Delancey,” one of the first glimpses of new music by the effortlessly suave city-minded musician we’ve heard since his 2013 album, Cupid Deluxe. With vocals, keyboard (a Yamaha DX7, to be exact), and droning cello work by Hynes himself, the song offers a melancholic trudge through the chasm that divides the singer’s R&B leanings and pop-minded production. Stream “Delancey” below.
