Dev Hynes went live on Instagram last night (23 April) to share a lot of info and tease some new, unreleased material.
As fan ehhwhatevr points out on Reddit, Hynes revealed that he "has a mixtape, album, and eight singles ready to release" and that he's "just deciding which order to release them in."
"He played the mixtape on the live stream last night, was like four-five songs and I'm about 90% sure I heard a Solange feature," added ehhwhatevr.
A lot of people managed to catch the impromptu listening session, and it seems they were impressed:

The latest Blood Orange songs arrived in February, and landed just a few days after a collaboration with Girlpool titled "Picturesong". Since the release of excellent LP Freetown Sound in 2016 Hynes has been hella busy showing it off to the world, collaborating with Blondie, singing the praises of Carly Rae Jepsen, and working on viral campaign VeilHymn.
