Girlpool and Dev Hynes of Blood Orange have teamed up on a new tune, “Picturesong.”
Hynes contributed backing vocals, keyboards, guitars and mixing on the song, which is Girlpool’s first new material since the May 2017 release of their sophomore album, Powerplant. Hynes’ most recent album as Blood Orange was 2016’s Freetown Sound.
Girlpool say of their new single:
“Picturesong” is a word invented to explore what we create in each other when we want to feel deep love because of loneliness or otherwise, and brings into question the reality and delusion of the things we feel.
Hynes added, “I’m such a fan of Girlpool, and loved working with them. Their harmonies are some of my favourites that are out there.”
Girlpool head out on tour next week, with February shows on both coasts. Along the way, they’ll share stages with The Hotelier, Land of Talk (solo), Forth Wanderers, Palberta and Special Explosion.
