It feels like an eternity since we’ve last heard from James Blake. The singer-producer released his last project, Assume Form that landed on many year-end lists. The album marked a turn for James Blake, as well. After consistently being boxed in as a sad boy, Assume Form strayed far away from that.
His latest release, “You’re Too Precious” is an extension of those sentiments. An essential vibe for these quarantined times, the singer brings the glitchiness of electronic music as he manipulates his vocals into loops over a serene piano progression.
“After a certain amount of time, somebody becomes too precious to lose,” James Blake told Beats1 about his new single. “And now you want to protect them in any way you can.”

Dive into diamonds
Scratched in your smile
No thought too certain
