James Blake has been teasing his writing sessions with Kanye West since last summer. A year later, we can finally stop speculating if their collaborative material will make it onto Blake's next release. In an interview with Esquire, the London producer revealed that Kanye West is indeed featured on his follow up to 2013's Overgrown, as Pitchfork points out. His next album, dubbed Radio Silence, also features Justin Vernon, who's taking a break from releasing new music with his band Bon Iver. “I can confirm that they’re on it," Blake said. "Kanye—I’m with him today. We’d already started on something… today we should nail something down. If it doesn’t end up on the album you know it hasn’t worked.” Stay tuned for a release date.
