In July of 2020, DEHD released their sophomore album Flower of Devotion, which got Best New Music on Pitchfork and was included in Best of 2020 lists from The FADER, Pitchfork, Paste, NPR Music, UPROSS, Vice, and more. Flower was a major step forward - and a major statement, period - for the band.  The songs reflected the band's deep range, from “Loner” with it’s synth powered heartland rock to the empowered strut of opener “Desire” to the from-the-gutters howl of closer “Flying.”  The performances were sharp, displaying a polish that brings out the shining and melancholy undertones in members Jason Balla and Emily Kempf’s songwriting. In September 2021, Dehd released Flower of Devotion Remixed– a remix of their “lush and inviting” sophomore album.  Flower of Devotion Remixed sees Dehd surrounded by a myriad of close collaborators (Protomartyr, Freak Heat Waves, Lala Lala and more), and points a shining spotlight on the Chicago music scene the band still calls home.
