After penning some brilliant songs for Sky Ferreira (“Everything Is Embarrassing,” three wonderful minutes of ’80s-inspired pop nostalgia and still her best song) and Theophilus London, aural auteur Dev Hynes (also known as Blood Orange) has found a new muse.
His newest song, “All That,” co-produced by Ariel Rechtshaid, is a swooning ballad that bears the earnest yearning of a Dev Hynes song, but Hynes relinquishes the spotlight to Canadian superstar Carly Rae Jepsen. His shimmering synth washes and Jepsen’s silky vocals coalesce nicely. The song premiered on last night’s SNL, though the production truly shines on the studio version below. Maybe this means a new Blood Orange album with some Carly Rae cameos? We can only hope.
