‘Playing Robots Into Heaven’ follows the critically acclaimed, “Friends That Break Your Heart,” James’ highest charting album in the UK to date – and will see James return to the electronic roots of his Hessle, Hemlock, and R&S records days.

To mark the release of “Playing Robots Into Heaven,” James will be embarking on a headline international tour, with dates in the UK, Europe, and North America. Kicking off at the Fabrique in Milan on the 18th of September, it will see James travel to his hometown in London for an Alexandra Palace show on the 28th of September, before wrapping up in Los Angeles on the 19th of October.

James Blake produced choice cuts on Frank Ocean’s Blonde, Kendrick Lamar’s DAMN. and Dave’s We’re All Alone In This Together, as well as JAY-Z’s 4:44, and Beyoncé’s Lemonade—to which he also lent his voice in both cases. Feature appearances span “Stop Trying to Be God” with Stevie Wonder and Kid Cudi on Travis Scott’s epic, ASTROWORLD, and “King’s Dead” with Jay Rock, Kendrick Lamar, and Future from the chart-dominating Black Panther: The Album. The latter not only went triple platinum, but it also earned Blake his first GRAMMY® Award in the category of “Best Rap Performance.” As he prepares for the release of his sixth album, James Blake’s shadow over popular music only continues to grow.
