It seems like we can look forward to a new James Blake album in the near future. In a conversation with the Miami New Times, the UK artist revealed that the follow-up to his celebrated Overgrown album, is “about seventy percent done.” As for the release date, we can expect the album to arrive in “about five months.” To top things off, Blake also mentioned the possibility that Kanye West will be featured:

“I have a lot of respect for [Kanye], for what he has been releasing for years,” says Blake. “We haven’t done a great deal of work in the same room yet, but we’ve done a few things, kind of helped each other with our own music. In terms of the actual collaboration for this record, it looks like we should be able to get something done. I know that there’s a specific song I would like him to be on, and if he can do that by the time my record comes out, that would be fantastic.”

Regarding the direction of the new album, he said”

“I’m working hard and doing my best—I’m aware that people want to hear this record, so I’m not being complacent. I should hope that [the new album] will be a step on, as much as the second one was to the first. I guess I’ve taken a focus on the songwriting again, even more closely, and I’m dabbling in some different production techniques, things I’ve developed.

“A lot of things have changed in my life since the last record, and overall for the better, so I’m in a good place, I think. I’m in a good place to write in general, and I have been for quite a while.”
