James Blake releases first original music in over a year, 'You're Too Precious'

James Blake releases, “You’re Too Precious”—his first single since 2019’s Assume Form LP which was released at the beginning of the year and featured the likes of Travis Scott, Metro Boomin, ROSALÍA, and Andre 3000. Soothing piano lays upon hardened bass to accompany an array of vocal offerings ranging from the original underlying warped humming cadence to high-pitched vocal chops that make way for Blake’s serenading crooning. The track carries a haunting harmonic element for a perfect chiller or relaxation piece.

During quarantine, Blake has entertained fans with covers of Radiohead, Billie Eilish, and more while playing his own music as well. Along with the single, the English multi-instrumentalist released a music video that encapsulates the tender allure to the soft tonal sounds.
