Listen: Bon Iver, Frank Ocean Collab On New James Blake Album

Stream the whole album here

James Blake gave his fans the perfect weekend gift. Last night, he dropped his brand new 17-track album The Colour In Anything with not much warning at all.

Blake’s latest release hits a new level of maturity in his craft. The Colour In Anything is a remarkable fusion of Blake’s unique haunting chamber pop and experimental hip hop blend. Some gems you can find on this album include a soulful duet with Frank Ocean titled “Two Men Down” and a mellow collaboration with Bon Iver on “I Need a Forest Fire”.

We’ve been hearing snippets of Frank Ocean here as of late. But while we anxiously await his Channel Orange follow-up, The Colour in Anything might be his most involved work to date. Ocean shares several co-writing credits with Blake on the new album which was also produced by Rick Rubin.
