James Blake premieres Don Mclean rework, "Vincent"
Time for some breathtaking music! James Blake has released a surprise new version of Don Mclean's Vincent , accompanied by an intimate performance video shot at Conway Studios in Los Angeles.

Vincent sees James Blake reimagine Mclean's timeless and poignant tribute to Vincent Van Gogh in his own inimitable style. This new piano / vocal renditon recently came to light in James' run of sold-out US shows (introducing a set spanning his three studio albums, as well as further hints of new material).Watch this stunning performance below!


Having played a selection of festivals and also toured with Radiohead this year, 2018 will see James Blake head out on a series of hugely-anticipated UK and European shows with Kendrick Lamar. The DAMN tour includes two dates at London's O2 Arena and an additional Wembley Arena show, recently added due to public demand.

James Blake is a Mercury-Award-winning, Brit Award and Grammy-nominated singer, songwriter and producer, whose touch can be felt throughout the modern musical landscape. Released with little to no prior warning, third album The Colour In Anything featured diverse contributions ranging from Bon Iver, Frank Ocean and Rick Rubin to visuals made in collaboration with Quentin Blake and Natalie Portman. Blake has since headlined the likes of London's Field Day, Green Man Festival, Glastonbury and lent his unmistakeable vocal and production presence to some of the most seminal records in recent years (Beyonce's Grammy-winning 'Lemonade', Frank Ocean's 'Endless' and 'Blond' LPs, plus Jay Z's '4:44' earlier this year).
