Earlier this month Dev Hynes’s Blood Orange project shared two brand new tracks, ‘Christopher & 6th’ and ‘June 12th’ as part of a playlist called Black History for Black History Month. The first rests on a loose not fully formed idea while the second addresses the salient issue of African American identity to a woozy synth and prominent off beat. Neither track will appear on his yet to be announced forthcoming follow up to Freetown Sound, our favourite album of 2016. Listen to June 12th below
