Blood Orange released one of the most highly rated albums of 2016, ‘Freetown Sound’. Following the release of the album and following his sold out tour across the United States this autumn, Blood Orange – aka Dev Hynes – has released the video for his incredible single, ‘I Know’.

The music video is filmed in a slightly grainy and authentic ‘home movie’ style, opening with a close-up shot of Dev Hynes singing into the mirror of a dance studio before fading out revealing the principal dancer at the San Francisco Ballet and American Ballet Theater that is Maria Kochetkova.

Together in this graceful music video, the pair are seen dancing together through a beautiful, well-rehearsed choreography which starts off in quite a serious tone but later progresses into a much more relaxed, enjoyable playful routine. It’s a completely mesmerising video, and along with the song it all fits together perfectly for a relaxing nature to both the audio and visual dynamics.

Check out the video here:
