James Blake lets a modern Flamenca artist run rampant.


The moment he first heard ROSALÍA sing, James Blake became enthralled with the idea that their fates would one day collide. Thanks to an unending list of contacts, Blake was able to manage the necessary "feelers;" arrangements were then made for an intimate studio session - resulting in a few bare stencils and "Barefoot in the Park" off his latest project, Assume Form.

"My manager played me Los Ángeles (ROSALÍA's debut LP), and I honestly hadn’t heard anything so vulnerable and raw and devastating in quite a while," James Blake parlayed in an iTunes-generated write up. "She came to the studio, and within a day we’d made two or three things. I loved the sound of our voices together."

Blake's inclusion of an operatic female voice upends this idea that James Blake panders to a "sad-soft boy" crowd. The result of the Assume Form recording sessions have been received with open arms, by all willing participants, including Metro Boomin who figures on two songs including the equally-evocative "Miles High" written in concert with Travis Scott.

Quotable Lyrics:

Ya tengo to' lo que quiero
Ya no puedo pedir má'
Cuando te tengo a mi la'o
Lo pasa'o se queda atrá'
Si te apartan de mi vera
Y te tuviera que encontrar
Hasta allá te encontraría
Como el río va a la mar
.
