James Blake & Jameela JamilJust a few hours from now, James Blake will release Assume Form, his truly excellent new album. But first, he’s letting a couple tracks trickle out in advance today.

James BlakeJames Blake’s highly anticipated new album Assume Form is out tomorrow, and besides last year’s “Don’t Miss It,” he hasn’t shared any of the music ahead of time. That changes now. Just 12 hours before the rest of the album is set to drop, Blake has released “Mile High,” the album’s second song. More »

Premature Evaluation: James Blake Assume Form

This post was originally published on this site

James Blake Assume FormThere have always been two James Blakes. There’s the one that’s been behind the boards for a lot of famous people (Beyoncé, Kendrick Lamar, Frank Ocean, Jay-Z, to name a few), pumping their songs full of a welcome gravitas. And then there’s the Blake that’s been present on his solo albums, something of a forlorn … More »

James Blake is *POSITIVELY DEFINITELY* releasing new album Assume Form this month!

This post was originally published on this site

You might remember seven [cold] days ago when we hit you with an unconfirmed-but-certainly-credible-and-up-to-accepted-journalistic-standards report that a certain Mr. James Woods, I mean: William Blake, I mean: James Blake was plotting the release of a new album titled Assume Form later this very [chilly] month.

Well, as it turns out, seven [freezing] days makes quite a difference in the music biz, because it’s finally been confirmed that Assume Form will assume form this month — NOT on January 25 as previously (and irresponsibly!!!) rumored, but on the much more attractive date of January 18. That’s seven [ostensibly not warm] days earlier!

Coming via Republic Records, Blake’s fourth studio album features ROSALÍA, André 3000, Travis Scott, Moses Sumney, and Metro Boomin (as previously and RESPONSIBLY rumored), as well as last year’s single “Don’t Miss It.” But it does not contain neither hide nor hair of 2018’s “If the Car Beside You Moves Ahead” (so don’t miss THAT, either). Check out the full tracklisting (which you’ve definitely never seen before) below.

Pre-order links for Assume Form are conveniently (and responsibly) aggregated here. Just think: only eight more [likely painfully frigid] days until we get new Bucky O’Hare, er, I mean: James Blake!


Assume Form tracklisting:

01. Assume Form
02. Mile High (ft. Travis Scott & Metro Boomin)
03. Tell Them (ft. Moses Sumney & Metro Boomin)
04. Into the Red
05. Barefoot In the Park (ft. ROSALÍA)
06. Can’t Believe the Way We Flow
07. Are You In Love?
08. Where’s the Catch? (ft. André 3000)
09. I’ll Come Too
10. Power On
11. Don’t Miss It
12. Lullaby for My Insomniac

James Blake Details New Album Assume Form, Out Next Week

This post was originally published on this site

James-Blake-Assume-FormA week from Friday, we will have a new James Blake album in our lives. We learned of the existence of Assume Form, Blake’s latest full-length, thanks to an accidental early Amazon listing and some eagle-eyed Reddit commenters, and Blake has been teasing the album ever since. And this morning, Blake … More »

James Blake Teases Assume Form

This post was originally published on this site

James BlakeTwo days ago, thanks to an early pre-order page on French Amazon, we learned that a new James Blake album called Assume Form is on the way. It’ll reportedly be out later this month and feature contributions from André 3000, Travis Scott, Moses Sumney, Rosalía, Metro Boomin, and UK rapper SwaVay. And now … More »

New James Blake album, ‘Assume Form’ purportedly on deck for release this month

New James Blake album, ‘Assume Form’ purportedly on deck for release this monthJames Blake 1

Last month, the multi-talented Brit, James Blake, set the scene up in a blaze of intrigue, taunting his crowd with an unreleased André 3000 (of Outkast) collaboration at a Brooklyn DJ set.

Now, thanks to the hyper-vigilant Reddit community (specifically user: Misfitxxx) and a leaked Amazon link, all signs point toward a full-length album from the singer/songwriter, entitled Assume Form. The since-deleted Amazon pre-sale page indicated the album–purportedly slated for a Jan 25 release date–will feature a grocery-list-length sundry of illustrious industry faces from Travis Scott (whom Blake collaborated with for Astroworld-housed “STOP TRYING TO BE GOD”) to Spanish songstress, Rosalía.

Given Blake’s affinity for precipitate album-dropping (2016’s The Colour in Anything), a sans-promo (almost) release is certainly within the realm of possibility for the 1–800–Dinosaur producer.

Below is the tracklist as it appeared on the Amazon pre-sale page:

01 – “Assume Form”
02 – “Mile High”
03 – “Tell Them”
04 – “Into The Red”
05 – “Barefoot In The Park”
06 – “Can’t Believe The Way We Flow”
07 – “Are You In Love?”
08 – “Where’s The Catch?”
09 – “I’ll Come Too”
10 – “Power On”
11 – “Don’t Miss It”
12 – “Lullaby For My Insomniac”
 

 

James Blake is *MAYBE KINDA PROBABLY* releasing a new album later this month?

This post was originally published on this site

Great news, everyone: It’s Rumor time!

Like we were totally just saying a few weeks ago when we announced his imminent 2019 North American tour: 2018 was a PRETTY BIG YEAR for Jiminy Glick James Blake.

But 2019 is looking positively ‘UUUUUUGE.

In addition to criss-crossing much of the western hemisphere next month, a recent Reddit thread points out that there’s totally one of those super-ugly Amazon.com pre-order pages up RIGHT NOW for a new album by Blake titled Assume Form.

(Hey, did someone just say “assume?”)

From the look of things, the British croon-master’s first album since 2016’s The Colour In Anything is POSSIBLY(?) out January 25 and — per a little additional Stereogum sleuthing — MAYBE(?) features contributions from André 3000, Travis Scott, Moses Sumney, Rosalía, Metro Boomin, and UK rapper SwaVay.

Timing-wise, of course, all of this would make a lot of sense, given how much Ricki Lake’s James Blake’s name has been in the news this past year.

But again: all of this remains UN-CONFIRMED-AF as of right now. Likely as they may be, these tantalizing rumors hardly count as “legit” news…but then again, Tiny Mix Tapes BARELY counts as a “legit” website! So, what the hell, right? Let’s all just “assume” this is definitely happening and get real excited!

Here’s MAYBE the tracklist for the LIKELY new album PROBABLY called Assume Form:

01. Assume Form
02. Mile High
03. Tell Them
04. Into The Red
05. Barefoot In The Park
06. Can’t Believe The Way We Flow
07. Are You In Love?
08. Where’s The Catch?
09. I’ll Come Too
10. Power On
11. Don’t Miss It
12. Lullaby For My Insomniac

James-BlakeBack in 2016, the foxy British mood-summoner James Blake released The Colour In Anything, his most recent album, with just a day of advance notice. Maybe he planned to do something like that with his next album instead. But thanks to Amazon fuckups and sharp-eyed online fans, we now have time … More »
