“Happy Black History Month. (All year)”

It’s been almost two years since Dev Hynes released his last Blood Orange album, Freedom Sound. The singer hasn’t released a lot since, but he’s working on a new album. During a performance at New Yorker Festival last October, Dev revealed he was 78 percent done with a new album. And then, last week, Dev put up an Instagram post saying “2018 new music finishing touches.”

On Monday morning Dev dropped two new Blood Orange songs called “Christopher & 6th” and “June 12th.” The two songs were released on his Soundcloud on a playlist called “Black History.”
