Earlier this year, James Blake covered Frank Ocean’s “Godspeed” on his Instagram, and today he’s shared an official studio version of the cover.
Blake, who produced and arranged the track, strips it back to an intimate piano performance. Staying true to Ocean’s version, Blake adds his own distinctive twist, removing the studio flourishes for a sparse, evocative rendition of the tune.
He even dyed his hair platinum blonde in honour of the title of Ocean’s latest album.
