Blake has been regularly covering songs during the lockdown, taking on tracks by the likes of Stevie Wonder, Radiohead and Billie Eilish during his Instagram Live sessions.

The musician shared a brand new single, ‘You’re Too Precious’, last month. It’s his first piece of new material since the release last year of his album ‘Assume Form’.

Talking about the track back in 2019, Blake described it as a love song that’s about “wanting to take a little bit of someone’s load and just loving that person”.
