Nearly a month after the release of his third studio album, The Colour in Anything, James Blake has revealed he will be touring North America in the Autumn. The album, which features multiple collaborations with both Justin Vernon (Bon Iver) and Frank Ocean, has been a labour of love for the experimental electronic artist, with it taking roughly three years to produce.
Vernon’s own musical festival, Eaux Claires, will be the ideal backdrop for Blake, as he eases himself back into the regular rhytmn of touring with two performances on the 12th and 13th of August.
Unfortunately, North America is just out of my price range. But, for those wanting tickets, local pre-sales start on June 2nd before going on general sale the following day. From June 1st at 10am, also, a pre-sale will be held specifically for Songkick users, who can purchase these from Blake’s official website.
