News | James Blake | The Colour In Anything | Universal
James Blake has released new record The Colour In Anything on Universal’s Polydor Records.
Between working on Beyonce’s Lemonade and Frank Ocean’s long-awaited followup, the 27 year old musician travelled from London to Rick Rubin’s Shangri La studio in Malibu to finish his own LP. Blake’s excellent third studio album contains production credits from Rubin and features from Frank Ocean, Connan Mockasin and close friend Justin Vernon of Bon Iver.
Rather than promote the album with weeks of fanfare and buildup, James opted for a guerilla release, debuting three new tracks with Annie Mac on Radio 1 before announcing that the album would be out just a few hours later. The record was subtly heralded by murals on Shoreditch’s Great Eastern Street and a Williamsburg, Brooklyn painted by cover artist Sir Quentin Blake.
James Bake’s The Colour In Anything is out now on Polydor. Watch the music video for I Need A Forest Fire ft Bon Iver below, and download the album via iTunes today.
