Songwriter, composer, director, and visual artist Devonté Hynes -- best known under his moniker Blood Orange -- will release the original motion picture score for the critically acclaimed film, Queen & Slim, for the first time on vinyl. This is the second full-length feature film score composed by Hynes, following his work for director Gia Coppola’s film, Palo Alto, in 2013.
The release of Queen & Slim’s score marks the end of an incredible 2019 for Hynes, who recently wrapped up a tour opening for Tyler, The Creator in arenas across America. As Blood Orange, he released the mixtape Angel’s Pulse this past summer, in addition to directing a video for Beck, writing a collection of classical music with Third Coast Percussion, directing and releasing a series of his own videos, and being called one of the Fast Company’s 100 Most Creative People for 2019.
