British electronic music producer and singer-songwriter James Blake has released a new song called “Timeless” along with an announcement that his new and highly anticipated album Radio Silence is finally finished. The album will be pretty long – it will include 18 tracks, and one of them will even be a 24-minute long song. However, Blake has not clarified whether “Timeless” or the other new tracks he’s shared will be on Radio Silence.
About a month ago, Blake released a song called “RPG” that was featured on his BBC Radio 1 residency. “RPG” features Trim (an East London rapper). The song has a sound that includes a mixture of electronic, dance, and R&B. Trim is known for his catchy electronic beats, while Blake often has more chill sounds – “RPG” is a perfect combination of these two types of music. Trim and Blake have collaborated in the past as well, back in 2012 when they worked on two songs together: “Confidence Boost” and “Saying.”
Other than releasing music under his name, Blake also has released remixes under the stage name Harmonimix. In 2011, he released his self-titled debut album and was nominated for the Mercury Music Prize that same year. He then released his second studio album Overgrown in 2013 and won the Mercury Music Prize again for that album. Blake was nominated for the Best New Artist Grammy award in 2014.
