Art pop singer-songwriter Dev Hynes a.k.a. Blood Orange is headed back out on tour early next year. Hynes announced, “Part 3” of his Negro Swan Tour on Tuesday morning, which is scheduled to begin shortly after the start of the new year with an appearance down in Mexico, followed by a run of performance dates across the southern and eastern United States throughout the month of February. The tour is of course named after the producer and singer’s latest studio album, 2018’s Negro Swan.

The 2019 tour will begin with Hynes’ appearance at Mexico City’s Bahidora Festival on Feb. 16, after which he’ll head northeast to Miami the following day for an appearance at the Florida city’s III Points Festival. His run of headlining performances will start at the Joy Theater in New Orleans on Feb. 19, followed by scheduled stops across Texas before heading to venues along the east coast including Atlanta’s Variety Playhouse, Baltimore’s Ram’s Head Live! and closing the run out with a show at Richmond, Virginia’s The National on March 2. The full tour schedule along with select ticket links can be referenced below.

The arrival of Negro Swan back in late August acted as Hynes’ first studio release under his Blood Orange moniker since 2016’s Freetown Sound. The self-produced project featured a mix of tracks with notable contributions from artists ranging from Puff Daddy and Tei Shi to ASAP Rocky and Steve Lacy. The music video for one of the song's featured singles, "Charcoal Baby," can be watched in full above. Following the release of Negro Swan, Hynes spent most of September performing across North America, with some select shows in the U.K. and Europe in late October and early November.
