Blood Orange Returns With New Single 'Chamakay'

Blood Orange - aka Devonte Hynes - has revealed the video for his new song "Chamakay". The video for the track, which features vocals by Caroline Polachek of Chairlift, was directed by Adam Bainbridge and filmed on Hynes' trip to Guyana, where he met his 92-year old grandfather for the first time. The song is also available for sale on iTunes NOW.
 
Hynes on the making of the video for "Chamakay":
 
"I decided to visit Georgetown, Guyana for the first time, the town where my mother is from. She, herself has not been back for 30 years, 3 years before I was born. I tracked down family members, including my 92 year old grandfather, who I had never met before. In this video you will see our first ever meeting.  The wonderful female vocals on this track are performed by Caroline Polachek from the band Chairlift. Special thanks to Yulandi, Tyrese Gomes, Samantha Urbani, The Crandons & Adam Bainbridge."
 
"Chamakay" is the first taste of Blood Orange's new album, Cupid Deluxe, which will be released later this year - details to be announced soon.
