James Blake Brings His Fourth Album, ‘Assume Form’ To The Palace On 3/4


For fans of James Blake’s earlier music, ‘Assume Form’ may not fit your quota of quavering falsetto and modern hooks. But what it does provide is a sultry and honest story with choice features that enhance the nostalgic feeling of the album. For those who aren’t familiar with the 30-year-old singer, producer, and composer’s cred, here’s a couple highlights: Travis Scott (Astroworld), Kendrick Lamar (Black Panther: The Album, DAMN), Jay-Z (4:44), Beyoncé (Lemonade), and so on and so forth.

Talking to Apple Music, the London-born artist credits his move from London to Los Angeles with his new approach. “I’ve been doing a lot of production work, a lot of writing for other people and projects… I think the constant process of having a mirror held up to your music in the form of other people’s music, and other people, helped me cross something. A shiny new thing”.  This “shiny new thing”, ‘Assume Form’, was released on January 18th and was met with critical acclaim (by everyone except Pitchfork, but you should just look up what James Blake had to say to clap back). The Assume Form tour will make a stop at the Palace in St. Paul on Monday, March 4th, with opening act KHUSHI.
