James Blake Just Dropped His Frank Ocean Co-Written Album & It's Silky Smooth
So we're all in a perpetual state of bliss atm, not only because it's Friyay, but because James Blake has gone and dropped his highly-anticpated new album The Colour In Anything and in typical James Blake style - it's pure magic.
Now what makes this release even more exciting is that dreamboat/enigma Frank Ocean helped him write all of it, and even though dem soft-like-butter vocals don't feature, this writing partnership is a match made in ethereal-electronica heaven.
James, who recently worked with Beyonce on Lemonade, spoke to Pitchfork about the collaboration saying, "he [Frank Ocean] was a huge inspiration for this record: his process, the way he writes, the strength of what he does, who he is."

It's almost enough for us to let go of the fact that Franky boy has yet to drop his insanely anticipated sophmore album, at least for now.
Together with Rick Rubin's sleeeek production, the album sounds like you're bobbing around on a cloud made of electric blankets on a comfortably warm setting of 5.
It's tasty, tasty stuff and you get to stream the entire thing now on Spotify.
