Last year, electronic artist James Blake announced the upcoming release of Radio Silence, the follow up to 2013’s excellent album Overgrown. The first track from the album, “Modern Soul,” was debuted during Blake’s BBC Radio 1 residency, and it provides a little taste of what the album has to offer. Within the first few seconds of hearing Blake’s smooth, falsetto vocals, it’s clear his skill in manufacturing various textures and waves within his signature synth beats hasn’t deteriorated in the slightest. Plus, he has also mentioned that the new album will feature collaborations with Kanye West and Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon. It’s still not clear when the album will be released, but when it does, it’s sure to be magnificent.
