Set to appear on his upcoming album, Cupid Deluxe, Blood Orange has shared a brand new music video his lead single “Chamakay.” Directed by Adam Bainbridge, the music video features various clips from Dev Hynes’ recent trip to Guyana, where he connected with estranged relatives for the first time. Going on to provide a little background on the video and the track, Hynes went on to share the following:
I decided to visit Georgetown, Guyana for the first time, the town where my mother is from. She, herself has not been back for 30 years, 3 years before I was born. I tracked down family members, including my 92 year old grandfather, who I had never met before. In this video you will see our first ever meeting.
The wonderful female vocals on this track are performed by Caroline Polachek from the band “Chairlift”. Special thanks to Yulandi, Tyrese Gomes, Samantha Urbani, The Crandons & Adam Bainbridge.
This is the first single from my new Blood Orange album titled “Cupid Deluxe”. Enjoy.”
