    The GRAMMY award-winning UK singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer James Blake is coming to Alexandra Palace!

    Operating as the enigmatic engine behind some of the most influential albums of the 21st century, he has produced choice cuts on Frank Ocean’s Blonde and Kendrick Lamar’s DAMN as well as JAY-Z’s 4:44 and Beyoncé’s Lemonade.

    Simultaneously, he emerged as pop’s most celebrated outlier with his dynamic solo output. He introduced a singular sound on 2011’s James Blake which Pitchfork crowned one of “Top 100 Albums of the Decade So Far (2010-2014).”

    On its heels, the 2013 Overgrown illustrated his rare magnetic ability to align the likes of Brian Eno and RZA on the same project. It notably received the 2013 Mercury Prize and secured Blake’s “Best New Artist” nomination at the GRAMMY Awards.

    After 2016’s The Colour In Anything, he reached new critical and commercial peaks with Assume Form during 2019. It bowed at #21 on the Billboard Top 200, marking his highest entry to date.

    Since then, Blake has treated fans to Instagram live performances, new music sneak peaks and two critically acclaimed EPs; Before and Covers. As he prepares his fifth album, James Blake’s shadow over popular music only continues to grow…
