James Blake – “Timeless”

James Blake – “Timeless”

James Blake has been teasing his follow-up to 2013’s stunning Overgrown for nearly two years now. But tonight, as Consequence Of Sound points out, while serving as a surprise host on BBC Radio 1, he announced that the long-awaited Radio Silence is finally complete. And he did give some justification for why it took so long: The album features 18 tracks, including one whopping 20-minute song. Recently, Blake has been taking advantage of his BBC Radio 1 DJ spots to premiere some new music, like the gorgeous “Modern Soul” and his “The Sound Of Silence” cover, and tonight, he did it again. Listen to “Timeless,” which builds from a minimal thump to a synth-and-sample freakout, below.

Still no word on a release date for Radio Silence, so I’m assuming it’ll be out in another two years.
