James Blake debuts new track ‘Building It Still’ – listen

The song is the latest to be revealed by Blake on Radio 1

James Blake has played a new song on his Radio 1 Residency show.

The new effort is called ‘Building It Still’ and can be heard below. It follows on from an untitled track the musician unveiled on the same station in September.

Back in June, Blake described his new album as being “half finished” and confirmed that he’s been collaborating with Kanye West and Bon Iver.

“I’ve had a completely different life since the first album. I’ve had a lot more freedom since the first album, too,” he said at the time. “The [album] I’m writing now, I’ve had more focus doing this than I have before. I’m having more fun. It’s hard to say what will end up on the record, but it’s exciting.”

Blake released his Mercury Prize-winning second album, ‘Overgrown’, in 2013. His next UK show will take place at Manchester’s Warehouse Project, in the Store Street venue, on November 8.
