Blending haunting operatic samples with glitching vocal effects, the track marks James Blake’s second piece of solo work since his 2016 album ‘The Colour In Everything’ It follows on from comeback single ‘If The Car Beside You Moves Ahead’.
The track toys with disappearing completely, and James Blake ponders going into hiding from the opening moments. “The world has shut me out, if I give everything I’ll lose everything” he sings. “I could avoid going outside, I could avoid wasting my life”
The new track is accompanied by a matching lyric video, which shows the lyrics being typed out in real time on a phone screen.
In recent months James Blake has also collaborated with Andre 3000 on ‘Look Ma No Hands’. He also linked up with Jay Z on a bonus track for the rapper’s latest album ‘4:44’.
He also contributed to Kendrick Lamar’s star-studded Black Panther soundtrack earlier this year.
This isn’t the first time that Blake has worked closely with Mount Kimbie. The frequent collaborators previously worked together on ‘We Go Home Together’
