James Blake, not the tennis player, has been chruning out some of the most palpable and beautiful music since 2011. His self titled album made him a superstar, capable of creating beautoful soundscapes tied together with a silky smooth British singing voice. We love him a lot.
Since meeting his wife, actress Jameela Jamil, Blake’s music has been steeped in beauty and love, each song seemingly a note to his beloved. His album “Assume Form” from last year is an absolutely delightful listen, especially from an artist whose catalogue was previously drenched in sadness.
Blake’s love for his wife and the beauty of the world are on display on his latest track, “Are You Even Real?”
The track follows up on his last release, “You’re Too Precious.”
With any luck, we’ll get another wonderful James Blake release before long.
