Blood Orange’s Dev Hynes Loses Everything In Apartment Fire

Last night Blood Orange mastermind Dev Hynes returned home to find his New York apartment completely destroyed by a fire. He lost music, hard drives, clothing, food, and sentimental items — literally everything he owns. Worst of all, his dog, Cupid, died in the blaze. At present it’s unclear how the fire started.

Hynes detailed the carnage in a series of tweets:

Career-wise, its been a banner year for Hynes after a long and occasionally treacherous climb through the music industry. His Album Of The Week-worthy Cupid Deluxe appeared on many best-of lists including ours. This, though, is an unbelievably terrible way to wrap up his triumphant 2013. Here’s hoping Hynes rebounds from this setback quickly.

UPDATE: Samantha Urbani’s mother is collecting donations to Hynes on this GoFundMe page.
