The singer may have enlisted Roald Dahl’s beloved illustrator for his upcoming project.
James Blake is gradually letting information slip about his highly anticipated new album, and today we may have gotten an early look at the artwork and album title.
Today, the singer and producer retweeted a mural being painted in London which includes the phrase “The Colour In Anything”. The four panel painting was made by Sir Quentin Blake, best known for his illustrations in author Roald Dahl’s classic children’s novels including James And The Giant Peach, Matilda, and The Witches. The image was also shared on the Facebook page of Blake’s label 1-800-Dinosaur.
The singer’s follow-up to Overgrown has been in the making for quite some time under the (admittedly not as interesting) working title Radio Silence. Earlier this month, Blake announced the album was finished and includes a 24-minute long song. He recently collaborated with Beyoncé on her new album Lemonade.
Take a look at the tweet and listen to Blake’s recent single (and possible album track) ‘Timeless’
