February/March dates will follow a pair of recent singles from the saucy warbler.

James Blake has announced that he’s set to begin his 2019 with an extensive headline tour across North America.

The singer, who released two new singles this year, will head out on a February and March run which begins in Atlanta on 18th February.

Beginning 2018 by supporting Kendrick Lamar on the European leg of his ‘DAMN.’ tour, the saucy warbler has been relatively quiet since then.

We’ve heard two new songs - the slinky throwback ‘If The Car Beside You Moves Ahead’ and the heartbreaking slowie ‘Don’t Miss It’ ft Mount Kimbie - and he played a bunch of piano-based new tracks live at the end of last year, but no concrete information reached us as to the whereabouts of a new album.

James Blake last released an album with 2016’s ‘The Colour In Anything’. Re-visit our feature, stripping back the paintwork of the singer’s third LP.
