Dev Hynes has just announced a new Blood Orange mixtape due out Friday, July 12, titled Angel’s Pulse via Domino. In a statement, Hynes explains in a statement that he often records music that only gets distributed among people close to him, and this release is cut from a similar cloth: “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,” he continues. “I’m older now though, and life is unpredictable and terrifying… so here you go mates.” That’s the mixtape’s artwork above. Check out his upcoming tour dates below.

Angel’s Pulse follows last year’s Negro Swan.
