In an interview with Billboard backstage at Bonnaroo, James Blake revealed that “every song is about 50% done” on the followup to last year’s Overgrown. He also mentioned that he’s recently been working with Justin Vernon and Kanye West (“when he’s around”). “It’s hard to say what will end up on the record,” he said. “It’s exciting times. And there’s someone else that I don’t want to mention right now that I’m excited about too.” (Maybe it’s Drake.) Watch the interview below.
