James Blake is back with another offering that is seemingly from upcoming album Radio Silence, delivering a slightly odd cake of R&B and electro layered into a delicious tune that’s being touted as “Timeless”. Blake’s vocals are still sounding as fragile and haunting as ever on this wobbly tune which dances around the rougher edges of electronica.
Blake, who was recently announced as part of this year’s Splendour in the Grass, first gave us a taste of this new record with “Modern Soul” and while it’s more ethereal and polished than “Timeless”, it’s sounding like Radio Silence is going to be another focused, hopefully timeless classic from this charming UK artist. Both songs were debuted on BBC Radio 1.
Listen to both singles below and remember that Splendour tickets are on sale very soon.
