After revealing the details of a new EP called Before earlier this week, James Blake has now officially released the project. In a press release, the producer described the EP as a statement of “finally having confidence to put [his] own voice on dancefloor rhythms.” Each of the project’s four tracks is also accompanied by a Ryder Ripps–directed visual, which you can watch below.
Earlier this year, James Blake shared the singles ‘Are You Even Real?’ and ‘You’re Too Precious’. He’s also performed a series of covers including Nirvana’s ‘Come As You Are’, Joni Mitchell’s ‘A Case of You’, and Frank Ocean’s ‘Godspeed’. His last album was 2019’s Assume Form.
