Radio Silence is the title of James Blake’s third album, which is funny because Blake has been premiering so many new songs on the radio lately. In fact, Blake announced the title on the radio during the final installment of his BBC Radio 1 residency, as Pigeons And Planes points out. The broadcast aired in December but only recently emerged online. The announcement comes about one hour and 40 minutes into the broadcast while Blake is doling out thank-yous. Hear it below.
Radio Silence follows 2013’s Mercury Prize-winning Overgrown. Kanye West and Justin Vernon are both rumored to make an appearance — and who knows, given how often West and Vernon collaborate, maybe they’ll be on the same song.
