Last year, James Blake revealed that his follow-up to 2013's Overgrown would be called Radio Silence. Ten months later, he shared its first track, "Modern Soul," during his BBC Radio 1 residency. Today, Blake showed up for a surprise appearance on the residency, sharing a new song called "Timeless" and revealing that the album is complete. He jokes that he's in Los Angeles because it's raining in England, and says, "I was here finishing off a few things. I did this thing I'm gonna put out at some point."

He continues, "I said it a couple of months ago that I think it's time to start recording an album because–you know–there've been requests. People have been asking if I'm going to record a record, so I did one." Blake offers, "It turned out great–quite long, but I'm really happy with it." and, "It's 18 tracks long. Yeah, one of the tracks is 20 minutes long, as well." His co-host says, "I think it's 24," to which he responds, "Yeah, for real."

yeah i love quentin blake but that is going to age extremely badly, and it looks pretty bad to begin with

this could be cut down to a really good 6 track mini-album

basically anything where his voice is treated as material currency in production is pretty good

unfortunately he mostly does the croony sing-song bullshit

couldn't be more of a mercury prize winner album if it tried

yep

back half is more tolerable than the front, but he also stacked like 30 minutes of the 1 hour 17 min album in 6 songs at the end

Haven't listened to this yet, but damn, sad to hear he stuck to crooning more than the "voice as material currency" direction (beautifully described, all day breakfast). I'll be giving it a listen nonetheless.

yeah this album is... ok.

it's pretty crazy how much weight this dude behind him. overgrown was brian eno, this is rick rubin

i'm surprised rick "cut out the crap" rubin didn't tell james blake to take out all the annoying high-pitched sounds out of this album
