    Blood Orange—aka Dev Hynes—recently popped by YouTube music series COLORS to perform “Dark & Handsome.”

    The singer stood in front of a purple backdrop while holding a matching bouquet of lilac and white flowers. He launched into a soulful rendition of the track, sans guest artist Toro y Moi, while toying with the bouquet. “Losin’ touch of everything I know / Prayin’ for my heart to turn to stone / Bandana tied around my broken skull / Ice around my wrist, my touch is cold,” he sang.

    “Dark & Handsome” is a cut from Hynes’ latest mixtape, Angel’s Pulse, which also includes the track “Benzo.” The singer previously performed on NPR’s famed Tiny Desk concert series back in February.
