James Blake has made his return to electronic dance music with his new EP Before.
The four-track EP marks Blake’s first full release since 2018’s Assume Form, and he started putting the EP together as parts of the country were headed into lockdown due to COVID-19. Before was inspired by the loss of fun, and spontaneous dance parties.
“I was frustrated that there’s nowhere to go dance, and ironically, I ended up making a dance EP,” Blake explains to Billboard. “It’s not all dance music, but that spirit runs through it.”
