Hot on the heels of Klavierwerke EP, James Blake recently unveiled this interesting cover of Feist’s ‘Limit To Your Love’…twice. This second version features a full vocal debut from the man himself, standing as a stripped-down piano-led piece which thrives on minimal quality and space, conjuring images of empty rooftops and midnight landscapes. I’m not sure I’m completely sold on it yet but I can definitely affirm that it’s a rather pleasant listen, with Blake’s voice bearing a wavering yet soulful quality.
Due to be the first single off his forthcoming album, which is expected to drop early next year, it’s a curious indication of what may be to come. Thankfully, Blake hasn’t seemed to put a foot wrong since he appeared at the start of the year so I can only assume that his album will be, as The Onion would say, hella fucking balls-to-the-wall awesome.
