Blood Orange’s Dev Hynes “lost everything”, including his dog Cupid, in an apartment fire last night.

He wrote on Twitter:

Last night, the unthinkable happened. My entire apt burnt down while I was out. I’ve lost everything I own, including scores, hard drives, clothes, sentimental items. Everything from my life is gone. My dog died in the fire. I will love you forever Cupid. I miss you. I still don’t own a phone. So email me if you need to get in touch. I might need some time. Thanks.

Hynes is just weeks removed from the release of Blood Orange’s excellent LP, Cupid Deluxe.

Update: As Pitchfork points out, the mother of Friends vocalist Samantha Urbani (who’s also Dev Hynes’ girlfriend) has created a GoFundMe page to help raise money for Hynes’ loss.
