James Blake hasn’t released a new album in almost three years, since 2016’s The Colour In Anything, but the English musician has been busy nonetheless. In just 2018, he collaborated with some of the biggest names in hip-hop – Kendrick Lamar, Future, Travis Scott, Jay Rock, and SwaVay – and managed to release a couple of phenomenally beautiful solo singles, “Don’t Miss It” and “If The Car Beside You Moves.”
Blake has now announced a 17-date North American tour for 2019. The tour includes a stop in Seattle on Sunday, March 10 at the Moore Theatre. Read the full list of dates below and watch Blake’s KEXP in-studio performance from 2013.

Nine decades deep into the electronic music genre, and the most startling and effective instrument it uses is still the human voice. From the earliest days of sampling and vocal splicing to the revolutionary vocal manipulations of Bruce Haack and Kraftwerk up through the live vocal looping we've ...
"Music can't be everything." Damn, that is not something you want to hear sung softly by the likes of UK bass pioneer and R&B crooner James Blake. And yet, this is how he closes out his third LP, as "Meet You In The Maze" fades out into oblivion, and the synthesized harmonies fizzle apart int...
Of all of the late night sets at Sasquatch 2015, none was more subtle than James Blake's. Unlike most of the nighttime sets in the Gorge, Blake's performance revealed itself gradually rather than blasting the audience over the head with lights and sound, and it was all the more effective because ...
