James Blake confirms Kanye on new album

It’s been no secret that Kanye has named James Blake as one of his favorite artists and current influences. It looks like we’ll finally have an album collab from the two, as confirmed by Blake himself in a new interview with Esquire that leaked to Reddit. Blake also reveals Justin Vernon will be on the album too.

“I can confirm that they’re on it. Kanye—I’m with him today. We’d already started on something…today we should nail something down. If it doesn’t end up on the album you know it hasn’t worked.”

– James Blake

Needless to say, looking forward to hearing the final product on Radio Silence.

Kanye on upcoming James Blake album

More Kanye @ Bonnaroo tidbits as this one comes from James Blake, who revealed in this interview with Billboard that he’s working on the follow-up album to his well-received 2013 Overgrown with none other than Kanye West, Justin Vernon, and a third collaborator he is keeping a surprise. I’m signing up for this Kanye x James Blake collab though as I vibe with the latter’s style and it should be something different too for West.
