JAMES BLAKE’S ‘FRIENDS THAT BREAK YOUR HEART’ IS COMING!
23rd July 2021
Mercury Music Prize and GRAMMY Award winning UK singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer James Blake has announced his fifth studio album, Friends That Break Your Heart, due out 10th September 2021.
It’s called “Say What You Will” the accompanying music video for the single is directed by Bear Damen and features a guest appearance from Finneas.
“The song is about finding peace with who you are and where you’re at regardless of how well other people seem to be doing. Comparison really is the thief of joy.”
Friends That Break Your Heart follows the Covers EP – a collection of Blake’s favourite covers, including his critically acclaimed cover of Frank Ocean’s “Godspeed” – and his 2019 released, GRAMMY nominated album Assume Form which was his highest charting album in both the UK and US to date.
James Blake’s first new full-length album in two years, Friends That Break Your Heart, will feature collaborations from JID & SwaVay, Monica Martin and SZA. James worked closely with British artist Miles Johnston to design a cover reflective of the album. The result is a visual encapsulation of the emotions brought forth throughout the body of work.
