Directly following the debut of his directorial work for Beck’s new music video for the Pharrell-produced “Uneventful Days,” Blood Orange (or, Dev Hynes) is revisiting his most recent album for his own new visual. Specifically, the multi-talented musician is reuniting with Toro Y Moi for a new vignette in support of their collaborative effort “Dark & Handsome.”

Originally released as part of Blood Orange’s July mixtape Angel’s Pulse, the forward-thinking “Dark & Handsome” was initially brought to viewers as one of the project’s opening salvos and alongside other collaborations with Tinashe, Project Pat, Arca, Kelsey Lu and others.

“I can count on one hand where the person I worked with wasn’t a friend beforehand,” Dev Hynes recently shared with The Independent, opening up about how he approaches collaborations like “Dark & Handsome.” “I’m lucky. Mostly, it just begins in my own music. It’s not that detached from my personal life or who I am. A lot of the time I have people around … whose opinion I like and trust and I’m a fan of as a person, whether you work on music or not. That being the case, I’m usually happy for their input in any form. … My thing is that I’m open to everything and anything. To me, the simple answer is that I love starting things, and I kind of love seeing it through at the end, but I don’t necessarily think I always know the best ideas in the middle period.”

You can take a look at Blood Orange and Toro Y Moi’s new music video for “Dark & Handsome” above.
