Blood Orange takes us for a ride through the majestic emptiness of desert in his new video “Chewing Gum,” which also features his guest vocalist A$AP Rocky. Directed by Blood Orange himself, the video is a close up to the freedom and fluidity we often experience in isolation where we have no distractions. Watch below:

“Chewing Gum” is from Blood Orange’s new album Negro Swan, which is out now. In regards to the new record Blood Orange shared, “My newest album is an exploration into my own and many types of black depression, an honest look at the corners of black existence, and the ongoing anxieties of queer/people of color. A reach back into childhood and modern traumas, and the things we do to get through it all. The underlying thread through each piece on the album is the idea of HOPE, and the lights we can try to turn on within ourselves with a hopefully positive outcome of helping others out of their darkness.”
