James Blake has announced a tour of North America
The singer has confirmed a string of North American tour dates due to take place later this year, in support of his latest album “The Colour In Anything”.
The album was released on 6th May, as James Blake’s third studio album. It landed at number 36 on the US Billboard 200, and topped the US Dance Albums Chart.
From the album, Blake released the singles “Modern Soul”, “Timeless”, “Radio Silence”, “My Willing Heart” and his latest track, “I Need A Forest Fire”.
James Blake said of the album: “I realized that [when it comes to making music], it wasn’t important whether I was happy or sad—it’s about sensitivity and your reaction to the world. I wouldn’t want to be one of those artists that keeps themselves in a perpetual cycle of anxiety and depression just to extract music from that.”
In celebration of its release, the singer will embark on his North American tour on August 12th as he performs at Eaux Claires Music & Arts Festival.
Following this, his first headline show will take place on September 23rd in Dallas, Texas, followed by a run of shows in Georgia, Pennsylvania, Ontario, California and many more North American states throughout September and October.
