Forget cards, flowers or gigantic stuffed bears - this is a real gift. As a very special Valentine's Day treat to you all, Blood Orange has released a video for his forthcoming single, "Forget It". Filmed on VHS by Alan Del Rio Ortiz (who also directed the video for "Sutphin Boulevard"), the clip follows Dev Hynes from first thing in the morning till he arrives, rather late, at his girlfriend's front door.

Warning! Don't try this at home if you fancy keeping your relationship intact:

"Forget It" is the album opener from the much acclaimed Coastal Grooves. It will be released as the next Blood Orange single on March 12th.

Also, Blood Orange has been confirmed to play at this year's Field Day Festival in London's Victoria Park on June 2nd and has also been invited to perform as special guest to Florence & The Machine on her upcoming US and Australian tours in April and May. Full dates for that tour can be found here.
