Blood Orange's Dev Hynes has shared a new song called 'April's Bathroom Bummer'.

Meanwhile, Hynes has said that he was a victim of racial profiling at Berlin airport, after he was held up by officers last month. The musician and producer tweeted that officers went through his electronic equipment asking for receipts of items he had purchased years before, and that his experience was "nothing new".

"Was just held in Berlin Airport even though I'm a valid EU citizen with a US visa," he wrote. "Everywhere I've ever been I am reminded that there are people out there holding a prejudice because of my skin colour, yes it was racial." He added: "They went through all of my electronics and wouldn't let me go because I didn't have receipts for things I bought a year ago."

Dev Hynes, formerly Lightspeed Champion, released his second album under the name Blood Orange, 'Cupid Deluxe', in November last year. The next single from the album, 'It Is What It Is' will be released on July 7.
