I thank XFM for playing this song last week more that I could have wished for, without exaggeration I have waited too long for James Blake’s new material and it’s finally here!
This track is the first single from his second album “Overgrown”, which will be released on April 8th. The melody is quite simple but then there is this intense synth chord and his beautiful voice that sends shivers downs my spine, I can’t stop playing it.
He is playing three dates in the UK in April but only one date in London at Heaven, and although pre sale tickets are sold out there will be more going on sale through the venue tomorrow at 9am so I suggest you set an alarm because they will be gone within minutes. He is also playing in Manchester and Glasgow.
I saw him at Field Day a few years ago and regardless the unstoppable rain and the crowded tent his set was beyond my expectations, none of the songs sounded like in the album, only better, each of them was a dubstep-like remix and the tent was turned into a rave.
This boy is a genius and a sea of talent, I solute you James Blake!
