Watch The Video For Blood Orange's Smooth New Single 'Charcoal Baby'



Dev Hynes aka Blood Orange can literally do no wrong. This week, he has shared the first single from his forthcoming album Negro Swan, and it’s as meaningful and magical as everything else he touches.

On his latest track 'Charcoal Baby', his stunning jangly guitar work sits perfectly against the persistent groove. An R&B gem that’s as smooth as it gets. The new song also comes with a touching clip that opens with the below quote, “I think of family as community, I think of the spaces where you don’t have to shrink yourself, where you don’t have to pretend or to perform.” Directed by Crack Stevens, the video reveals a split screen of Hynes interacting in two different settings. 

Negro Swan is set for release 24th August via Domino Records. Please indulge in the below.
