Dev Hynes hosted a pair of star-studded benefit shows at the Apollo Theater last month, during which the producer/songwriter behind Blood Orange performed with the likes of Solange Knowles and Nelly Furtado. As an added bonus, fans at the show were able to purchase a limited-edition cassette featuring “Hadron Collider,” a collaboration between Hynes and Furtado.
The good news for those who weren’t in attendance is that the lushly produced ballad has now emerged online. The track first appeared yesterday on Disco Naïveté, and the consensus so far is that it was well worth the wait. Hynes and Furtado take turns singing over a piano-led melody that’s as stylish and seductive as anything Blood Orange has produced so far. Give it a listen below.
