James Blake debuted his new song, “Building It Still,” yesterday on his BBC Radio 1 Residency program. Blake has been using his residency to premiere a handful of new tracks, many of which have been untitled, aside from “200 Press,” which he presented back in August. The songs provide patchy glimpses into what kind of an album Blake has been working on with the help of Justin Vernon and Kanye West. “Building It Still” sounds like a clear departure from last year’s Overgrown. The sample-heavy, stuttering track dips into the same veins explored on Blake’s CMYK EP, which was released four years ago on R&S, before his self-titled debut. Listen below.
always love some James Blake very talented and inspiring musician. Look forward to hearing his new body of work.
