James Blake – “Modern Soul”

While the rest of humanity was busy digesting The Life Of Pablo, James Blake was DJing on BBC Radio 1’s Residency, and he took the opportunity to slip an absolutely gorgeous new track of his own into the world. Like the “Sound Of Silence” cover that he shared a few months ago, “Modern Soul” is a minimalist slow-burn, starting with some faded piano chords and that ethereal croon and gradually expanding out into a crystalline cavern of sound. Listen below.

So how about that new album, eh James? Your buddy Justin Vernon is finally getting his ass in gear!
