“It’s like playing in my living room”, James told the crowd after arriving on stage. The one-off show celebrated the surprise launch of his third full length album, The Colour in Anything. And after time working with Beyonce, Drake, Frank Ocean and Travi$ Scott, it felt like an almighty coup to have the artist back on home turf.
From The Line of Best Fit review:
“Perhaps the evening’s most heartwarming moment is the inclusion of debut album highlight “The Wilhelm Scream”, dedicated by Blake to his father, reinforcing the intimate nature of the occasion.
Three albums in, James Blake’s distinctly British brand of soul continues to enthrall. A more extensive UK tour has been promised and doubtless will be one of the year’s hot tickets. As for tonight, it’s a triumphant homecoming. The prodigal son has returned.”
