Last week while performing in Los Angeles and San Francisco, James Blake previewed some new material, the first we’ve heard following 2016’s The Colour In Anything. The songs were called I Can’t Believe That We Float, Asking For A Friend, and Black Lung, which integrated elements of Radiohead’s sombre tune, Videotape.
Watch James Blake play three new songs and cover a Radiohead classic live on stage last week.
Fans caught the new songs on camera. All three clock in around the six minute mark, and in true James Blake style, are distinctly dark and soulful. You can check them out below.
The Radiohead cover isn’t the first time we’ve heard Blake taking on music from other artists Earlier this year, he covered Frank Ocean’s Godspeed at a festival in Arizona. He’s also been known to cover Joni Mitchell’s A Case of You.
