James Blake Announces North American Tour, Promises New Album in 2013

Publish date:

The divisive producer, songwriter, and singer James Blake has announced two months' worth of North American tour dates for this spring, also confirming that his sophomore full-length album will be released later this year. The as-yet-unnamed LP is set to appear via the Republic label in the coming months, and—from the sound of the press release—is most likely completed, as Blake is now in the process of "preparing to unveil the details" of the forthcoming record. In the meantime, the UK wunderkind has a rather extensive tour planned throughout April and May, as well as an appearance at this year's Coachella festival, the full dates for which you can check out below.
