James Blake Shares Stirring New Song “Modern Soul”

He's at work on his new album Radio Silence.

This evening during his BBC Radio 1 residency with his 1-800-Dinosaur label, James Blake premiered a new song called “Modern Soul.” It slaps like “The Wilhelm Scream,” with just enough discordance rumbling beneath the dubby soul to resemble something of a balance between the anxious and the chill, but not enough to stop you from feeling totally stratospheric.

Listen to the full broadcast here. Blake's last album Overgrown was released in 2013. His collaborators on his new album Radio Silence have included Kanye West and Justin Vernon of Bon Iver.
