I have been a huge James Blake fan for a long time, so hearing he has released new music today is some of the best news I have heard all day. The new track, “Modern Soul” is exactly what it needs to be, and almost fits the title quite well. James Blake has done just that with his music, given us a modern and almost hypnotic flavor to soul music and it has been missed.
“Modern Soul” has so many different aspects and things going on that is impossible to take it all on in on the first listen. The production is haunting at times, yet reaches an epic climax towards the end with James giving us is signature falsetto vocals on top of it.
This track is seriously amazing, and I really hope James Blake gives us more, and very soon.
