Dev Hynes is busy prepping his new LP under the Blood Orange moniker, Cupid Deluxe, out November 18 via Domino. He shared the smooth tropic sound of Chamakay last month, and today he released the album’s second single, You’re Not Good Enough.
While the visual for the romantically funky track does feature words, it’s not really a lyric video. As a pair of loafer’d feet wanders through a murky atmosphere, phrases pop up that seem to be thoughts behind the song, rather than its lyrics. When Hynes silkily croons about an unbalanced relationship, the screen flashes messages like “You should just come over anyway, I like the company.” Well, it is getting cold outside.
