James Blake is back with a brand-new song

James Blake took to Twitter earlier today to unveil a new song and accompanying film, recorded live earlier this month in Los Angeles' Conway Studios.

The track itself is an emotive cover of Don McLean’s song ‘Vincent’, which was originally released back in 1971.

'Vincent' was written at the time as a tribute to legendary artist Vincent van Gogh, with lyrical references to van Gogh's famous painting 'The Starry Night' made throughout.

The new Blake material follows up an impressive performance at Houston’s Day to Night festival last weekend.

Watch the stunning studio visuals below to hear ‘Vincent’.
