Rhye Releases Dreamlike New Video for 'Hymn': Watch

Genevieve Medow Jenkins

Rhye has shared an ominous new video for "Hymn," a mellow B-side from his rhymthic second studio album Blood, released in February of this year, five years after his debut.

The Canadian singer/producer effortlessly blends slow beats with intoxicating melodies that blur the lines between soul, R&B and pop on Blood. The album creates soft moods of desire and mystery, which are especially felt in songs like "Taste," "Song for You" and "Hymn." The surreal visuals throughout Rhye's music video are equally as haunting and beautiful as the album.

Rhye has also announced a North American tour this October, beginning in Dallas and wrapping up in Sacramento, Calif., before heading to China.
