Murals by Quentin Blake in London and New York have announced James Blake’s new album title, The Colour in Anything. The first appeared last week in Shoreditch’s Great Eastern Street, depicting two gloomy watercolour landscapes across four panels, featuring a shadowy figure and the title phrase. The producer then hinted at his ties to the artwork by retweeting Quentin Blake’s photographs of the artwork being installed, and following up with a similar post on Instagram.
This week, a second, less mysterious mural went up in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, with brighter, more abstract washes of watercolour and the words “James Blake The Colour in Everything” written in Quentin Blake’s signature script. Though there is still no official word from James Blake, this seems to confirm the producer’s third album is imminent.
