Hit of the week: Blood Orange “Augustine”

Following the surprise release of Freetown Sound at midnight, Blood Orange released a new video for the album cut “Augustine.” Dev Hynes directed and edited the clip, which captures the singer/songwriter playing instruments in an empty apartment and an assortment of dancers showcasing their moves on rooftops. Hynes also appears in front of the flag of Sierra Leone, which is painted on a wall. The album borrows its name from Freetown, the capital of Sierra Leone where Hynes’ father was born. Our hit of the week.
