Dancing With Myself, Indie Edition: Blood Orange's "Time Will Tell" Video

Indie musician-producer-all-around-maestro Dev Hynes just released a new video for "Time Will Tell," the closing track on Cupid Deluxe, which is his second album under the breathy R&B crooner persona Blood Orange.

The "Time Will Tell" video finds Hynes dancing alone and showing off some moves that bring to mind Prince, Gene Kelly and Carlton… if the Fresh Prince character was interpretive dancing instead of shaking it to Tom Jones.

Hynes also revealed this song (but not the video) was "recorded live in one take that lasted about 15 minutes." While British indie electronic musician Adam Bainbridge manned the drum machine in the studio, Hynes "ad-libbed the vocals, recalling lyrics from songs of mine and a song by Adam's, which he was unaware I was going to do."

That's some serious talent. Watch the lovely result above.
