Dean Blunt

There’s a certain degree of guesswork involved with every new track from Dean Blunt and Inga Copeland (known live, nowadays, as Hype Williams). Last time around, I made up some bullshit narrative about their “Stalker” videos, but this time I’ve actually done my homework! What we know for sure is that the track in question, “Flaxen,” comes from The Narcissist III, presumably a forthcoming follow-up to Blunt’s brilliant The Narcissist II solo mixtape released earlier this year. We also know that it’s indeed Blunt on harp, as he played the instrument for nearly five years at the Jacobs School of Music of Indiana University. And on the vocals? Yep, it’s Inga Copeland, who studied voice at the Conservatoire de Paris. Because of these facts, we also know that we can safely call this High Art.
