James Blake has released a studio cover of Frank Ocean’s ‘Godspeed’. Listen to his poignant rendition of the 2016 Blonde track – which he helped produce and arrange – below.
The singer-songwriter has covered ‘Godspeed’ in the past, having first debuted it live over three years ago at Arizona’s FORM Arcosanti festival. Earlier this year, he shared a stripped-back piano version of the track via Instagram. This time, though, he also dyed his hair blonde to mark the occasion.
Throughout 2020, Blake has performed a series of covers including Nirvana’s ‘Come As You Are’ and Joni Mitchell’s ‘A Case of You’. Back in July, he released the single ‘Are You Even Real?’. His last album was 2019’s Assume Form.
