James Blake Confirms New Album 'Assume Form'
It will feature Travis Scott, André 3000 and Metro Boomin
Published Jan 03, 2019James Blake could be releasing a new album before the end of the month, according to Reddit sleuths and a listing on Amazon France.
As pointed out by Indieheads on Reddit, Amazon France has listed a new album by Blake titled Assume Form with a release date of January 25.
More than that, the Amazon listing features a list of guest contributors to the record, including Travis Scott, Rosalía, Moses Sumney, Metro Boomin, André 3000, Dre Moon, Mount Kimbie's Dominic Maker, Allen Ritter and viral violinist Peter Lee Johnson.
Scott previously enlisted Blake for "Stop Trying to Be God," while Sumney collaborated with Blake for a rework EP last year.
There's even a tracklisting on Amazon France, which you can see below. It includes the recent single "Don't Miss It" (but not "If the Car Beside You Moves Ahead").
Blake did, however, recently officially announce a North American tour that begins next month. See the full list of shows here.
Blake's last full-length album The Colour in Anything was released in 2016.
UPDATE (1/3, 2:30 p.m. EST): Following the publication of this story, the Amazon France listing has been pulled down.
