Blood Orange (aka Dev Hynes) released a new album, Negro Swan, back in August 2018 via Domino. Last night he stopped by The Late Late Show with James Corden to perform two brand new songs: “Something to Do” and “Dark Handsome.” The former was more of a short piece that led into the latter. Hynes performed on a set that replicated a park, with his backing singers on benches behind him and a Union Jack on the fake grass next to him. Blood Orange is in between performing at the two Coachella weekends. Watch his performance below.

Previously Hynes shared videos for two new songs from Negro Swan, “Charcoal Baby” and “Jewelry” (which were our joint #1 Song of the Week). Then he stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! to perform a brand new song from the album “Chewing Gum,” clad in a T-shirt that read “Negro” and aided by A$AP Rocky, who was wearing a T-shirt that read “Swan,” and Memphis rapper Project Pat. Then he shared videos for “Saint,” “Chewing Gum,” and “Dagenham Dream.” He also did a Tiny Desk Concert for NPR. The album was follow-up to 2016’s acclaimed Freetown Sound.
