British artist Blood Orange has unveiled his first headline tour dates for 2018, which include Pitchfork Festivals in Chicago and Paris. Formerly known as Lightspeed Champion, Blood Orange is the solo project of Dev Hynes who was also a member of the band Test Icicles (haha). He has produced for artists such as Carly Rae Jepsen, Solange Knowles, Florence and the Machine, and The Chemical Brothers. Being a vanguard of baroque pop, Blood Orange can craft rare and eccentric rhythms that possess the stickiness of big pop hooks. Watch “Better Than Me”:
