You know, when he’s not offering vocals to material from other artists, dishing out remixes or producing material for a mix of rising talent and established artists (Laura Welsh, MKS, Solange amongst others…), producer Dev Hynes also has his own solo music career as Blood Orange to concentrate on.
And so, arriving as a timely reminder that he has a new album coming out in just a few weeks, here arrives new single You’re Not Good Enough from upcoming collection Cupid Deluxe.
We’ve already heard the beautiful saxophonic R&B ballad Chamakay from the album which is due to hit iTunes on 12 November, but this latest offering is equally as enriching, with Hynes pairing up for another lovelorn duet with girlfriend and lead singer of New York band Friends, Samantha Urbani.
As a musical item, the duo strike gold every time, having recently teamed up for a cover of Toni Braxton & Babyface’s Hurt You, Friends track The Way and on Stay Bless’ Faded, and so it’s unsurprising that You’re Not Good Enough is no exception.
