And just like that, we have a new James Blake album! After over a year of teasing, what was once known as Radio Silence and now will live on as The Colour In Anything is here. It’s Blake’s third studio album, the follow-up to 2013’s Overgrown, and was produced in part by Rick Rubin. We’ve heard a scattering of tracks in the months leading up to the record (plus a whopping three today) — “Modern Soul,” “Timeless,” “Radio Silence,” “My Willing Heart,” and the Justin Vernon collaboration “I Need A Forest Fire” — and now we get to hear the whole thing. Vernon also co-wrote and co-produced closing track “Meet You In The Maze” and provided “additional production” on “Two Men Down.” Frank Ocean co-wrote “My Willing Heart” and “Always” contains an interpolation of his song “Godspeed,” and Connan Mockasin played bass on “Noise Above Our Heads.” Stream the album below, talk about it in the comments. What a busy week!
The Colour In Anything is out now via Polydor.
