After launching his anti-streaming streaming platform Vault.fm at the end of March, James Blake has released his latest auditory offering. Dubbed “Thrown Around”, the UK producer’s latest cut is available to stream on all DSPs – not just Vault.fm.

Blake refers to the four-and-a-half-minute track as “defiant,” also deeming it “a nod to some of the music [he] grew up listening to, growing up in England.”

“Gets me thrown around,” he repeats on the chorus, as the electronic beat builds in the background.

“It started as an ambient piece that I made with Dom Maker, that connected something very deep in me to the influence of British electronic bands,” Blake continued in a statement.

“It’s a defiant song that’s wrestling with where our job takes us, what it does to our life. It deals with the drawbacks of spending so much time dedicated to work. We don’t have any drives towards community – we are all driven towards success. Then we feel lonely and Thrown Around. This song brings people together – it is the connection through defiance.”

“Thrown Around” marks the first release from the independent artist since his Playing Robots Into Heaven album, which dropped last September.

Stream “Thrown Around” on Spotify and Apple Music now.
