James Blake is set to play a small, three-date tour this December.
The shows will take place in Bristol, London and Manchester, over a year since the electronic artist last played live in the UK.
Today (September 24), Blake releases the Harmonimixes of Trimbal’s ‘Confidence Boost’ and ‘Saying’. The tracks are a collaborative effort between Blake and ex-Roll Deep member Trim. Scroll down to watch the video for ‘Confidence Boost’, directed by Rollo Jackson.
Earlier this year, James Blake said that his next album will sound “more aggressive” and “clubby”. The singer, who released his self-titled debut album in February last year, told Spinner that he had started sessions on the follow-up and predicted that it would embrace a different sound.
“A lot of the vocal music I’ve been doing recently has been quite clubby,” he said. “But that’s mainly because I’ve had more time to go to clubs, and that normally breeds that kind of influence. I’ve been doing quite a few DJ set recently, which have been really fun.”
He went on to say of his plans for the record: “I think it’s going to be a bit more aggressive, to be honest. It seems that way.”

Bristol Thekla (December 3)
