Watch: James Blake covers Frank Ocean’s ‘Godspeed’

'New decades resolution was to spend more time at my instrument than at a laptop'

James Blake has dropped a powerful, piano-based cover of Frank Ocean’s “Godspeed” on Instagram.

Blake delivered a heavy cover of Ocean’s tune, crooning atop a simple piano line, allowing the song’s lyrics to take the lead.

“New decades resolution was to spend more time at my instrument than at a laptop,” Blake wrote in the Instagram post. “So here’s a cover I play of a song I helped write – Godspeed by Frank Ocean. I think I messed up a lyric near the beginning but hey, none of these are gonna be perfect.”
