James Blake has dropped a video for the official version of his take on Frank Ocean song "Godspeed." Blake produced and played on the 2016 original, which appears on Ocean's Blonde, and first performed his take on the song as part of an Instagram Live when the world went into lockdown as Covid-19 hit earlier this year. He also covered the Billie Eilish song "when the party's over" during the same period.
"Godspeed" is Blake's third release of 2020 after recent single "Are You Even Real?" and "You're Too Precious." His latest album Assume Form was released in 2019. Read our interview with Blake around the project here.
