Blood Orange – “Uncle ACE (Kindness Remix)” (Feat. Robert Owens) Video
Last year, Blood Orange released his silky and beautiful album Cupid Deluxe, and now Dev Hynes’s friend and frequent collaborator Adam Bainbridge, better known as the disco-pop auteur Kindness, has remixed “Uncle ACE,” one of that album’s standout tracks. The twitchy, thumping new version has vocals from Robert Owens, the singer whose voice can be heard on many early Chicago house-music classics. Bainbridge has also directed a video for the remix. In the video, we see a series of long, static shots of Romford, the sleepy London suburb where Hynes grew up, and we see Hynes and Bainbridge and Owens wandering through it. Watch it below.
Cupid Deluxe is out now on Domino. Check the video’s YouTube page to read Hynes and Owens’s answers to the questions in the video. Also, Hynes recently wrote a heartfelt elegy for his friend Peaches Geldof, who died suddenly earlier this week; you can read that here.
