Published Nov 22, 2010UK artist James Blake has made a name for himself over the past year with a handful of EPs exploring smooth R&B melodies and dubstep-style production techniques. Tracks like his cover of Feist's "Limit to Your Love" (see the video below) manage to meld sexy piano plunks with stark, snail's pace snare hits and syrup-soaked backups, while other songs make for more experimental washes of white noise and dank sound samples. Looking to up his output, the performer has announced he's moving past the world of EPs and is set to release his first full-length.
The crossover artist will deliver his album, simply titled James Blake, early next year courtesy of major label A&M/Interscope and Blake's own ATLAS imprint. The disc will be delivered February 7 in the UK, but no word yet on a North American date.
A proper tracklist has yet to pop up, but "Limit to Your Love" is reportedly included. And while there's no info of which songs will make up the disc, the performer has revealed James Blake's artwork, which can be seen above.
