James Blake has revealed that his new album The Colour in Anything will be out tonight. Yes, that’s right: at midnight GMT, Blake will release his third album and the follow-up to 2013’s Overgrown. The album has been teased recently via billboards in London and New York – featuring paintings by Roald Dahl illustrator Sir Quentin Blake – but no one was necessarily expecting it to arrive so soon.
The news came after Blake spoke to Annie Mac on BBC Radio 1 earlier today. As well as revealing the title and surprise release, he also played two songs from the album – “Radio Silence” and the Bon Iver-featuring “I Need A Forest Fire”. He also revealed that he worked with Rick Rubin on the record.
