Jack Greer directed the clip, which follows Barnett over the course of a day as he jokes with roommates, rides around New York City, goes to the barber and gets a stick-and-poke tattoo. Much of the clip is set at a sparse concrete park, where the ethereal grooves of “Dagenham Dream” soundtrack Barnett’s joy and frustration as he leaps over traffic barrels or slips and hits the asphalt hard.
Along with sharing the video for “Dagenham Dream,” Blood Orange also announced a short North American tour that will kick off February 16th at the Bahidora Festival in Mexico City. The tour will hit several cities around the South including Miami, New Orleans, Dallas, Atlanta and Nashville before wrapping March 2nd in Richmond, Virginia.
Negro Swan arrived in August and marks singer-songwriter Dev Hynes’ fourth album under his Blood Orange moniker. His last LP, Freetown Sound, was released in 2016.
