Dev Hynes aka Blood Orange has given us a nice surprise to start the week: He's going to be releasing a 'mixtape' called Angel's Pulse on Digital Service Platforms this Friday (July 12th). He made the announcement with the following statement:

My new record is called “Angel’s Pulse” & I performed, produced and mixed the entire thing myself. I’m calling it a mixtape.

I have a habit through the years of making records that I just give to friends, or on tape to people on the street, or no one. Usually this material is made directly after the album I’ve just put out. Somewhat of an epilogue to the thing I’ve made before. This time.. I decided to release it.

I put as much work and care into it as I do with the albums I’ve released, but for some reason trained myself into not releasing things the rate at which I make them. I’m older now though, and life is unpredictable and terrifying… so here you go mates.

Hope you enjoy. Catch you soon.
