James Blake Announces A New Album, ‘Friends That Will Break Your Heart,’ Coming This Fall

James Blake is having a big day: the Grammy-winning electronic musician has announced a fifth studio full-length, Friends That Break Your Heart, coming in September via Republic Records and featuring guest spots from SZA, JID, Swavay, and Monica Martin. In addition, Blake has shared a ruminative lead single, “Say What You Will,” an accompanying music video co-starring Finneas, and a run of fall tour dates.

“The song is about finding peace with who you are and where you’re at regardless of how well other people seem to be doing,” Blake said of the new song in a statement. “Comparison really is the thief of joy.”
