Devonté Hynes (aka Blood Orange) is releasing his first album of classical music compositions. The collection is called Fields and it’s performed by the Chicago-based ensemble Third Coast Percussion. It’s out October 11 via Cedille. Check out the tracklist and album cover below.

Fields consists of a suite called “For All Its Fury” (the first 11 tracks of the album), followed by compositions titled “Perfectly Voiceless” and “There Was Nothing.” Hynes composed all the music in a Digital Audio Workstation and then sent the recordings and sheet music to the members of Third Coast Percussion who arranged and orchestrated them for their own instruments.

“This was the first time I’ve written music that I’ve never played, and I love that,” Dev Hynes said in a press release. “It’s something I’ve always been striving to get to. Seeing what Third Coast Percussion had done with these pieces was magical.”

Earlier this year, Hynes released the Blood Orange mixtape Angel’s Pulse.
