We know the smooth and soulful Devonté Hynes (aka Blood Orange) has a change in taste lately – having released his latest album Fields last month, the English singer-songwriter, producer and director is now making classical music and it. is. not. a. phase.
Dev’s latest project, the underscore for Lena Waithe’s new film Queen & Slim, is similarly symphonic and available November 22, while the film hits cinemas November 27. Strap yourself in for some melodic piano folks, it’s going to be a wild ride.
Queen & Slim marks Dev’s second full-length feature score, following his more traditional Blood Orange-esque, electronic and dreamy soundscape for Gia Coppola’s 2013 film Palo Alto, a film about substance abuse and sex. Featured here are two new classical bangers from the score, titled Hair and Kissed All Your Scars. Enjoy this music to feel smarter to <3
