James Blake gave a performance of ‘My Willing Heart’ on Late Night with Seth Meyers last night (September 22).
Blake performed the song in support of his upcoming North America tour dates, which kicks off tomorrow. You can watch the performance below.
Speaking of ‘The Colour in Anything’ artwork, drawn by Roald Dahl illustrator Quentin Blake, James Blake told Annie Mac, “I’m so lucky to be able to work with him on this.”
He continued, “I’ve always loved what he does. My mum is a graphic designer, an artist, and she got me into him at an early age.
“It wasn’t actually my idea, it was my manager Dan’s idea,” he continued. “It wasn’t actually going to be for this record, it was going to be for something else. And then this record turned into the kind of record that suited this artwork.”
“Now when I look at the artwork, there’s so much emotion in what I’m looking at that sometimes I find it hard to even look at. It brings back this whole experience, the record, the things that went into the record, the stories that went into, the journey of it. It really encapsulates the whole thing for me.”
