James Blake Releases Pair of New Songs

James Blake took to his BBC Radio 1 show residency last night expecting to catch up with fellow British electronic artist Burial last night, and instead ended up dropping two new songs of his own. The 25 year old musician/composer gave fans a first listen at his latest, “40455,” which is inherently Blake through and through with its linear, dark, growing instrumental lines and Blake’s melancholy vocals. He also dropped a remix to Beyonce’s “Drunk in Love” track with Jay Z, under his alter alias, Harmonimix. Check both tracks out, streaming below here.
