Listen: James Blake Debuts Jamie XX’s ‘Girl’ On Radio 1 Residency

James Blake initially played the song by claiming it to be from a producer called ‘Simon Tallywhacker’.

As part of his monthly residency slot on Radio 1, James Blake took the opportunity to debut a brand new Jamie xx track, ‘Girl’.

The song forms the other half of the producer’s new single ‘Sleep Sound’ / ‘Girl’, which comes out 5th May on 12’ via Young Turks. At first, James Blake bloked the song as something called ‘Bloke’, by ‘Simon Tallywhacker’ (potentially one of the best producer pseudonym’s in recent years, there).

It opened James Blake’s show last night - listen from the top here on iPlayer. Alternatively, have a listen below:
