James Blake

After his last few EP excursions, James Blake is now at work on a sophomore album, and he played a few new tracks at a recent London show. In the 15-minute clip below, he tries out a couple of new tracks alongside “Lindisfarne I and II” and his cover of Joni Mitchell’s “A Case Of You.” And at least from what I can tell, these new songs push his sparse, soulful electronic singer-songwriter sound even further than his first album did. Check it out:

There’s no word yet on a new Blake album, but the man works fast; I’d expect it sometime next year.

  1. Is it too soon to bring back boner gifs?

  2. All kidding aside though, holy CRAP! One of the things that impressed me so much about his debut was his ability to cull aesthetic tinges from each of the three EPs from 2010 and then push the sound further. And you can hear a bit of “Love What Happened Here” and “Enough Thunder” in this, but that first song is so warm, it’s unlike most anything we’ve heard from him before.

    I am ridicradobulotiflickily excited about this follow up.
