James Blake has today released his fourth album Assume Form, available now on all streaming services..
With the title mysteriously teased on sites around New York, Los Angeles and London at the start of 2019,Assume Form can now also be confirmed to feature a world-class cast of guests, ranging from André 3000 and Travis Scott to ROSALÍA, Metro Boomin and Moses Sumney. Here are the kind of diverse and unexpected collaborators who could only be united by a mercurial, one-off talent, and a still-just-30-year-old who on ‘Assume Form’ continues to take bold new shapes.
James Blake has risen to become one of the most important musicians, producers and songwriters in the world. In the last couple of years alone, the Mercury-Prize-winner and Brit and Grammy Award nominee has worked with Kendrick Lamar, Beyoncé, Jay Z, Mount Kimbie, Bon Iver, Chance The Rapper & Frank Ocean; not to mention collaborating on arts’ projects with Quentin Blake, Natalie Portman or The Black Panther soundtrack.
A truly global presence, in the UK James has headlined the likes of London’s Field Day, Green Man, Glastonbury and has also confirmed an appearance at this summer’s Primavera Sound Festival.
