Blood Orange is due to deliver his new mixtape, Angel’s Pulse, later this week. The project is considered something of an “epilogue” to the R&B artist’s solid Negro Swan album from 2018. Today, we receive our first official taste of the ‘tape in the form of “Baby Florence”.
Recorded in the Italian city for which its named, the new song was debuted during Blood Orange’s two-hour special on London’s NTS Radio. It’s a grooving number, peppered throughout with bold, staccato-like percussion.
