Blood Orange has released a long-form video for three standout tracks from his brilliant album Freetown Sound, keeping up with the ongoing trend of short films in music. The singer-producer extraordinaire created an intimate and intriguing visual for “With You”, “Better Numb”, and “Best of You”, his collaboration with Empress Of.

The Luke Gilford-directed video features Amandla Stenberg playing keys and violin alongside Dev Hynes, spliced with footage of intimate caresses and gazes on the streets. Empress Of also makes an appearance, crooning “Best of You” while laying around lovingly with her collaborator. Hynes also continues his fascination with dance after making it the center of his previous “Better Than Me” video with Carly Rae Jepsen. But this time, he goes solo with a moving interpretive routine during the solemn and twinkling “Better Numb.”

The quick fadeout and simple proclamation of “next” could mean many things, but we prefer to think that more is on the way. Watch the video below.
