Blake’s new song, which you can hear below, has been co-produced and co-written by the producer duo Take A Daytrip, who are known for their work on such songs as Sheck Wes’ ‘Mo Bamba’, Lil Nas X‘s ‘Montero (Call Me by Your Name)’ and Travis Scott and Kid Cudi‘s ‘The Scotts’.

The album will follow on from Blake’s ‘Covers’ EP, which featured renditions of tracks by the likes of Frank Ocean, Billie Eilish and Joy Division.

“One of the things keeping me going mentally throughout lockdown has been the requests from fans for different covers and performing them on Instagram,” Blake said of the EP upon its release in December.
