James Blake switches his pace to pop on “Assume Form”

James Blake has released his fourth studio album Assume Form, the follow up to 2016’s The Color in Anything. The new album sees a change in pace for the British singer-songwriter/producer, shifting from his expected indie electronic to hip hop infused pop music.

The album is a moody lullaby with lush, romantic undertones, and contains features from Moses Sumney, Rosalia, Travis Scott, Andre 3000 as well as additional production from Metro Boomin. Prior to the albums release, last night Blake dropped single ‘Mile High’ featuring Travis Scott and Metro Boomin.

Last year Blake appeared on the Black Panther soundtracks ‘King’s Dead’, and released avant-garde electronic loose single ‘If the Car Beside You Moves Ahead’.
