Blood Orange was the musical guest last night on The Late Late Show with James Corden, where he debuted two new singles for our listening pleasure.
The British-Sierra Leonean artist, backed by a group of four vocalists perched on a bench behind him, performed "Something To Do" and "Dark & Handsome," while lying on a bed of grass with a guitar in hand and a British flag beside him. It's a still and mellow performance.
These are the first singles since the release of Negro Swan in 2018, which featured the likes of Diddy, ASAP Rocky and more.
The artist also made an appearance at Coachella this past weekend, where he delivered a standout cover of Neil Young's 'Heart of Gold."
In January, the artist took to NPR's Tiny Desk for an ethereal live set, revisit it here, and check out his stripped-down performance on The Late Late Show With James Corden down below.
