James Blake unveils a tender moment of beauty, Don't Miss It

It's the second major single Blake has released this year, following on from If The Car Besides You Moves Ahead.

There's a certain heartache to James Blake's work which makes it so hauntingly beautiful, no matter whether it's featuring on his own solo work, like 2016's The Colour In Anything LP, or his long list of collaborations with everyone from Beyoncé and Drake to most recently, tracks with Kendrick Lamar, Andre 3000 and Jay-Z. On If The Car Besides You Moves Ahead, his first significant single since his 2016 record, Blake made this tender feeling more subtle underneath unsettling glitchy vocals and jarring synth chops, but his new single, Don't Miss It, places it in the foreground. Featuring Dom Maker of UK electronic duo Mount Kimbie, Don't Miss It is a moment of heart-aching beauty, opening with a subtle piano melody and his own warming vocals, which take centre stage for the first time in a long while. At particular moments, the track glitches with his trademark warping autotune or sweeping samples, which add depth amongst the track's expansive piano melody and structuring, subtle percussion.

Listen to the single below, and be sure to cross all your fingers and toes that we'll be hearing a lot more from James Blake in 2018:
