BLOOD ORANGE “DO YOU SEE MY SKIN THROUGH THE FLAMES”

blood orange
I remember once when the legendary Nina Simone started a conversation about the cultural effect someone’s art can have in the community. She asked her fellow famous friends, “How can you be an artist and not reflect your times?” That is truly the same outlook Dev Hynes takes with “Do You See My Skin Through The Flames”.
A 10 minute track where Blood Orange very eloquently educated his fans with a message of personal racial despairs and sufferings over the Charleston shooting, all over a smooth experimental tempo that he’s well known for. A few breaks in between the track tone things down for a more serious sound where Dev Hynes’ voice enraptures you with heartfelt monologues about personal discriminant situations the singer has experienced before and after his fame began. 
Released with a statement via Facebook, Hynes doesn’t necessarily make a point to announce any singles, any promotion for future work; he simply wanted to share the track as a symbol of support and self expression.
