James Blake has shared another single from his upcoming album ‘Friends That Break Your Heart’, after ‘Say What You Will’ in July.
Working with US-duo Take A Daytrip on the track, the artist has given audiences a second glimpse into what direction he’s taking with the upcoming project. With a melodic and energetic instrumental and a stellar vocal performance from Blake, the track is filled with emotion and Blake’s versatility and artistic development over his decade-long career.
The new track follows the more meditative ‘Say What You Will’, which arrived with a video directed by Bear Damen and featuring Finneas.
Blake has kept himself busy in the lead up to his new album, releasing two EPs last year, producing and featuring on Dave’s number one album ‘We’re All Alone In This Together’, as well as Slowthai’s ‘Tyron’.
