30th October | O2 Academy

James Blake entered the big leagues earlier this year when he released his third album The Colour In Anything with about, um, three hours notice. The fact that Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon features on the album’s highlight ‘I Need A Forest Fire’ didn’t do any harm either.

Blake had been slowly carving out a reputation as one of the country’s most exciting new musicians, but this new album has thrown him to the forefront as one of its best talents, full stop.

Coming to the O2 Academy on 30th October for a show that’s been sold out for months, it’s the perfect chance to see an incredible talent at the top of his game. Support comes from Mark Pritchard, who recently released new album Under The Sun, featuring gorgeous single ‘Beautiful People’, with added vocals from a certain Thom Yorke.
