Life round here is going to light up this September as James Blake is coming to the UK for a one-off show at Alexandra Palace. The Ally Pally performance is part of a world tour in support of his new album, Playing Robots Into Heaven – here’s what you need to know.
Godspeed James Blake fans, because the musician is coming back to the UK this autumn for a one-off show at Alexandra Palace.
The Overgrown singer will be heading to Ally Pally as part of a new world tour running from September to October this year.
The tour is in support of Blake’s sixth studio album Playing Robots Into Heaven, which is set for release on the 8th September. Just last week, the 34-year-old released his first single from the album, Big Hammer, which is the first set of new music he’s shared since 2021.
A singer, songwriter and record producer (oh my!), James Blake is best known for his collaborations with some of the world’s biggest artists. From Jay-Z and Beyoncé to Chance The Rapper and Kendrick Lamar, Blake has quite the portfolio, not to mention working on a couple of tracks for The Black Panther soundtrack. In 2018, one of those songs, King’s Dead, earned him a Grammy for Best Rap Performance.
As a musician, Blake’s style has been described as “genre defying” with a mix of hip-hop, R&B and electronic all coming to play throughout his albums. In the charts, he’s seen four UK top 10’s and five UK top 40’s. Now, he’s back again and we’re going to get you that spot in the crowd – famous last words!
