James Blake is ending the year with an EP full of song covers.

The aptly titled Covers project hears the English musician put his own piano-based twist on the fan favorite “Godspeed” by Frank Ocean (which he previously officially released after three years), Billie Eilish‘s heart-wrenching “when the party’s over,” Joy Division’s “Atmosphere,” Stevie Wonder’s “Never Dreamed You’d Leave In Summer,” an interpolation of Beyoncé‘s “OTHERSIDE” and Roberta Flack’s “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face.”

“It’s been a joy to discover new music and new ways of playing songs I’ve already heard,” Blake said in a statement.

Covers follows his October EP Before, and marks his second release of 2020. However, Blake’s last full-length release dates back to January 2019’s Assume Form, which brought him a Grammy nomination for Best Alternative Music Album.

Stream James Blake’s Covers on Spotify and Apple Music.

In other new music releases, Kid Cudi’s highly-anticipated Man On The Moon III: The Chosen is finally here.
