Until a few days ago, word about James Blake’s upcoming album was mostly rumors, but now Blake himself is starting to confirm that the follow-up to 2016’s The Colour In Anything actually is on its way. Earlier this week, Blake shared an official website for the record, which confirmed that the rumored title, Assume Form, was accurate. A page on French Amazon indicated that the album would be released on January 25, but now Blake has debunked that, because Assume Form will actually drop before that: A poster advertising the album has been spotted in London, and it says the record will come out next Friday, January 18.
The Amazon listing also indicated that Travis Scott, Andre 3000, Rosalía, Metro Boomin, Moses Sumney, and UK rapper SwaVay would be featured on the album, and the poster says that all of those people except SwaVay are on the record. Blake has since made the album available for pre-order, so check out the confirmed tracklist below.
1. “Assume Form”
2. “Mile High (Feat. Travis Scott & Metro Boomin)”
3. “Tell Them (Feat. Moses Sumney & Metro Boomin”
