Less than a year after the release of his latest Blood Orange album, Negro Swan, Dev Hynes returns with a new mixtape entitled Angel’s Pulse.

The tape is born out of a process that Hynes says he usually goes through with every album, but hasn’t previously made publicly available.

“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,” he explains.

“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.”

The fourteen track collection boasts guest appearances from Toro Y Moi, Kelsey Lu, Ian Isiah, Justine Skye, Project Pat, Gangsta Boo, Tinashe, Porrches, BennY RevivaL, Arca and Joba of BROCKHAMPTON.
