Blood Orange announces classical LP Fields
The album is due out on October 11 via the Chicago-based classical label, Cedille.
Dev Hynes, the London-born musician better known as Blood Orange, has announced his first classical music album. Fields— written by Hynes, arranged and performed by the Chicago ensemble Third Coast Percussion — is due out October 11 on Cedille.
“This was the first time I’ve written music that I’ve never played, and I love that,” Hynes said in a press release. “It’s something I’ve always been striving to get to. Seeing what Third Coast Percussion had done with these pieces was magical.”
