Quiz time: What do Basement Jaxx’s Scars, Florence and the Machine’s Lungs, Solange’s “True” EP, and the film MacGruber have in common? All feature contributions from Dev Hynes, the producer-singer-songwriter-multi-instrumentalist who once went by Lightspeed Champion but these days is better known for Cupid Deluxe, the new album he recorded under his new alias, Blood Orange. If that’s a lot of names for you, cue up your streaming-music service of choice and listen to “Chamakay,” the minor-key album opener that picks up right where, say, Solange’s “Losing You” left off.
