James Blake has dropped a new album created to help listeners drift off to sleep. Wind Down is available from today, May 23, and was created in conjunction with German software company Endel. The ambient album was created using Endel's A.I. engine and is available on all major streaming services. Check it out below.
“The Wind Down soundscape I created with Endel lets me explore the more ambient side of my music and create a project to support people in a new way,” Blake says in a statement. “It's mesmerizing to hear how my music blends with the science-based sounds of Endel's AI and I think we've invented something not just beautiful or even meaningful, but truly practical.”
Wind Down uses the same AI technology and sounds found in the Endel app. The company previously worked with Grimes on her “A.I. Lullaby,” a music generator for sleeping released in 2020. Blake also has history making ambient music aimed at aiding healthy sleep, having released "Lullaby for My Insomniac" in 2019. His latest album, Friends That Break Your Heart, was released last year.
