British singer and songwriter Blood Orange, also known as Dev Hynes, has scored the new film, “Queen and Slim.”

The film, written and produced by Lena Waithe and directed by Melina Matsoukas, has been described as a “modern day Bonnie and Clyde,” with the main characters on the run after shooting a racist cop in self-defense on their first date.

“Queen and Slim” stars Daniel Kaluuya (from “Get Out”) and Jodie Turner-Smith.

Hynes’ most recent mixtape, Angel’s Pulse, was released last month. He recently revealed on Instagram that he wrote the score for the film.

“Queen and Slim” will be in theaters nationwide this November.
