Mykki Blanco, has dropped a new video for “It’s Not My Choice” (feat. Blood Orange), directed by Blood Orange’s Devonté Hynes. The video features Mykki, Dev and friends portraying a carefree, tightly-bonded life in pure, weightless freedom. Of the video and process, Mykki reflects:

“Creating with Dev Hynes as director of this video was as effortless as creating the song together. I have long admired that Dev has never compromised along his musical trajectory, offering us songs that play between disciplines and genres at the wave of a hand. This video was carefree and captured what I feel to be some quintessential summer moments — being with friends, being in nature, and having a sense of poise no matter your own personal thunderstorm.”

Along with the news, Mykki Blanco today also announces UK and European live dates for this November with a London show at Village Underground on November 10 as part of Pitchfork Music Festival London. Mykki also performs in Manchester this August as part of MCR Pride Live.

The single is off Blanco’s current release Broken Hearts & Beauty Sleep, now available via Transgressive Records. The track sees Mykki Blanco navigating the painful realities of a potential breakup, reflecting then pleading to save their romance and keep the love alive. With production from executive producer FaltyDL reminiscent of the early eighties musical stylings of Steely Dan, Michael McDonald and Anita Baker, “It’s Not My Choice” finds Hynes crooning melancholically over a lush synth and saxophone laden baseline.
