James Blake has announced his new album is on its way. The album is called Friends That Break Your Heart and he’s dropped the lead single today.
‘Say What You Will’ is a slow burning feeler of a track. And of course, it’s a sonically stunning song.
“The song is about finding peace with who you are and where you’re at,” said James Blake in a media statement. “Regardless of how well other people seem to be doing. Comparison really is the thief of joy.”
The new single comes with a music video. It features producer and one half of Billie Eilish, FINNEAS and sees Blake compare himself the producer throughout the clip.
In the video, Blake is addressing the media, holding one Grammy. Referencing the 2020 Grammy Awards, FINNEAS walks down the stairs nearby holding his six Grammy Awards in his arms.
You can watch the video down below.
James Blake’s fifth studio album, Friends That Break Your Heart will arrive Friday, 10th September.
