LISTEN: October’s two hottest Dev Hynes-inspired tracks

Talented multi-tasker Dev Hynes, of Test Icicles, Lightspeed Champion & Blood Orange fame, has used his midas touch to great effect on not one, but two new October cuts.

The musician, writer and producer has been working closely with Solange Knowles on her upcoming third album, and is responsible for the tangy sweetness that is the irresistible ‘Losing You‘. Channeling vintage Madonna, Solange proves once again that the Knowles gene pool is one of the finest around, and in the process firmly leaving her older sis on the back foot.

But not content with one early autumn success story, Dev also co-wrote ‘Everything is Embarrassing’ for LA pop minx Sky Ferreira. As she seductively pouts and smoulders her way across Los Angles, Dev jumps on keyboard and offers perfectly complimentary backing vocals. The track is from Sky’s Ghost EP, which is out now.
