Dev Hynes – aka Blood Orange – and former Foreign Born member Ariel Rechtshaid are working with Carly Rae Jepsen on a new song.
The ‘Call Me Maybe’ singer posted a photo of the three in a studio together on her Instagram account with the accompanying message: “Recorded one of my fav songs today with -@devhynes and @arielrechtshaid. Could be interesting.”
Hynes and Rechtshaid previously worked together on Sky Ferreira’s ‘Everything is Embarrassing’ and Solange’s ‘Losing You’. Separately, Rechtshaid has contributed to Charlie XCX’s ‘True Romance’, co-wrote Usher’s ‘Climax’, and produced Haim’s ‘Days Are Gone’ and Vampire Weekend’s ‘Modern Vampires of the City’. Hynes has worked with Florence & The Machine, Kylie Minogue and Theophius London.
Carly Rae Jepsen’s last album ‘Kiss’ was released in 2012. Meanwhile, last week, a new Gia Copolla-directed video of Alexa Chung performing a cover of Stevie Nicks’ 1994 hit ‘Blue Denim’ was released as part of a series of music video releases by fashion website MyTheresa.com. The track was recorded and produced in New York by Dev Hynes.
Hynes also produced the latest single from London indie band Spector in lieu of their as-yet-untitled forthcoming second album. The song, entitled ‘Don’t Make Me Try’ is Spector’s first output since standalone single ‘Decades Of Decay’ and their debut 2012 LP ‘Enjoy It While It Lasts’.
