Mustafa and James Blake Team Up on New Song ‘Come Along’: Watch

    Toronto singer, songwriter, and poet Mustafa has shared new single called ‘Come Along’, featuring production from James Blake. The artist debuted the single with a  Nabil-directed video of a live performance featuring Blake on piano and vocals, which you can check out below.

    “Perpetually grateful for James who helped free me of my own emotional burdens when I was young, to now helping me free these stories of those who’ve passed too young,” Mustafa said in a statement about the track, which reflects on issues of gun violence. “Today marks two years without Smoke Dawg. I pray the people you lost come back to you in the form that heals you best, if not a memory, a dream, if not a dream, in their siblings eyes, if not that, then in the way you carry yourself.”

    “If she runs her fingers through my past / She may lose the softness in her hands / Maybe I can still make it come back,” Mustafa sings on the track.

    Blake and Mustafa previously collaborated on the singer’s debut single, ‘Stay Alive’, which was released back in March.
