Dev Hynes is inescapable. From his work with Solange on "Losing You," to Sky Ferreira's massive, "Everything is Embarrassing," the Brooklyn musician has his hand in some the biggest independent hits of the last few yearsall the while making seductively complex pop under the moniker Blood Orange. Friday marks the release for his upcoming Cupid Deluxe, an album that, if it’s anything like the world pop stylings of the single "Chamakay," will prove to be dripping with sunny disposition. If it's something new and characteristically melodic you're after, look no further.
