Dev Hynes has returned to Negro Swan – the latest album under his Blood Orange moniker, released back in August — for a remix of “Smoke,” the project’s closing track. The new single is dedicated to the late Mac Miller, who was a close friend of Hynes. In the new version track, Hynes raps about the loss of his friend including the line “I couldn’t even prepare for the loss/What could I do but cry,” as well as “RIP my boy Mac.” You can stream the track below.
The remix also features guest appearances from regular collaborators Yves Tumor (who recently toured with Blood Orange) and regular collaborator Ian Isiah. Prior to releasing the remix, Hynes explained that he would “be dropping new tracks on the regular,” so keep an eye out for more releases from the artist.
