James Blake To Feature On New Drake Album

The ‘Overgrown’ crooner was invited to Drake’s Toronto studio.

James Blake

is set to play some part in Drake’s new album ‘Nothing Was the Same’, due for release 25th September in the UK. It’s the one with this ‘interesting’ dual cover.

While Blake’s ‘Overgrown’ effort was released earlier this year and given he’s been touring it ever since, the ‘post-dubstep’ innovator was invited to Drake’s studio, according to an interview in Rolling Stone.

Details of the collaboration have not been fully confirmed. ‘I saw him at a show and told him I had some ideas knocking around, and he invited me to Toronto’, Blake told the publication. ‘Anything that comes out of that studio, I’m happy to be involved.’

We’re bound to hear more on this James Drake (?!) collaboration before the album release.
