Is James Blake teasing a new album title and artwork?

A new mural in Shoreditch seems to suggest ‘Radio Silence’ may now be titled ‘The Colour In Anything’.

As is the new hip thing to do, James Blake may have changed his album title.

A new mural has emerged in Shoreditch, painted by none other than frequent Roald Dahl collaborator Quentin Blake (not sure if there’s any relation to James, tbh) and featuring the phrase “The Colour In Anything”. This is where it gets doubly interesting, though - the usually fairly social media shy James re-tweeted an image of the mural being put in place yesterday, which was swiftly followed by Blake’s 1800-Dinosaur collective sharing a wide shot of the full painting on their Facebook page (below).

It’s the latest in a long line of teasers from James Blake, whose follow-up to the Mercury prize-winning ‘Overgrown’ has been in the works for some time. He announced a fortnight ago that it was finally finished, sharing a new track ‘Timeless’ in the process. That links up with ‘Modern Soul’ and ‘Radio Silence’ in previewing that third LP, which is also confirmed to feature collaborations with Kanye West and Justin Vernon of Bon Iver. Blake also recently featured on ‘Lemonade’, Beyoncé’s latest surprise album.
