Blood Orange | 25/04/14


Devonté Hynes – who released the highly acclaimed Cupid Deluxe just last year under the moniker Blood Orange – has scored the major motion picture Palo Alto, Gia Coppola’s adaptation of the book by the film’s star James Franco.  The film’s official soundtrack, which features a brand new song from Hynes – the first new track since the release of Cupid Deluxe, last year – will be physically released on Domino Records on CD/LP on June 3, 2014, and is available digitally today.  Entitled Palo Alto (Music From The Motion Picture), the soundtrack features Hynes, as well as songs by Coconut Records’ Jason Schwartzman, Rooney’s Robert Schwartzman, Mac Demarco, and more.

Following the release of Cupid Deluxe, Dev Hynes has very quickly established himself as one of the most prolific musicians, songwriters and producers in the industry right now. Hynes recently played to massive crowds for his very first Coachella performance, sold out must-see shows in NYC, LA and San Francisco, and recently performed as a special guest at this year’s Armory Week party for the MoMA.  Cupid Deluxe made countless year-end lists, including NPR Music’s “Top 50 Albums of 2014,” Rolling Stones’ “Top 100 Songs of 2014” and many more.   GQ recently called him “2014’s answer to Lou Reed,” while the New York Times gushed, “The work of Devonté Hynes radiates a thorough, passionate, forgetting-to-eat-or-sleep love for the last 30 years of pop.”

Hynes has also recently announced a rare performance in NYC on August 16th and Central Park Summerstage, following his festival set at Lollapalooza in Chicago on August 1st.
