James Blake - The Colour In Anything

James Blake - The Colour In Anything - Polydor

James Blake Litherland known as James Blake, is an English electronic music producer and singer-songwriter from London. He first received recognition in 2010 for a trio of dubstep-influenced EPs, and the following year his self-titled debut album was released in the United Kingdom to critical praise. His second studio album Overgrown was released in 2013 and was awarded the Mercury Prize. His third studio album The Colour in Anything was released in 2016. Blake has also released remix work under the moniker Harmonimix.

The Colour in Anything is the third studio album by James Blake, released on 6 May 2016 by Polydor Records. It features contributions from Justin Vernon and Frank Ocean, and additional production work by Rick Rubin.

The album’s soft watercolor cover, painted by Roald Dahl illustrator Sir Quentin Blake, and the title of the album itself, The Colour in Anything, invite the listener to imagine his music itself as a sonic painting. Throughout the album, he constantly expresses the sentiment that, as he mourns in closing track “Meet You in the Maze,” “music can’t be everything.”

With each brushstroke, James Blake seems to have painted his own version of a visual album.
