Dev Hynes takes on 'Metamorphosis: III'

It’s the third composition in a series of five included on Glass’ 1989 release ‘Solo Piano’.

Meanwhile, Dev Hynes reportedly called Devendra Banhart’s music “insufferable”. Pitchfork reported last month (1 September) that Hynes wrote in a tweet that has since been deleted: “The music of devandra banhart is so insufferable I feel sorry for the entirety of Los Angeles, you deserve better.”

Asked by a fan, “What exactly is the point of being so insufferably rude?”, presumably in response to the now-deleted tweet, Hynes replied by simply writing: “Happiness”.

Hynes released his third album as Blood Orange earlier this summer. Titled ‘Freetown Sound’, it features guest appearances from Nelly Furtado, Carly Rae Jepsen and Debbie Harry.

The video for ‘Augustine’, a single from the album, saw Hynes joined by Julian Casablancas of The Strokes, with the pair sharing fried chicken in the promo clip.
