James Blake Announces ‘Friends That Break Your Heart’ 2022 Tour

25th September 2021 | Category: Concerts

James Blake has announced the UK and European tour in support of his forthcoming new album called Friends That Break Your Heart.

The tour will take in a series of dates in Glasgow, Manchester and Sheffield, as well as a gig at London’s Alexandra Palace.

Blake’s dates kick off on April 30, 2022 at the O2 Academy in Glasgow before wrapping up at Alexandra Palace on May 17, 2022.

This month, Blake released his latest song ‘Famous Last Words‘. It follows last month’s ‘Life Is Not The Same‘ and July’s ‘Say What You Will‘.

James – who is in a relationship with actress Jameela Jamil – recently shared how ‘Say What You Will’ is about “finding peace” within himself.

He said: “The song is about finding peace with who you are and where you’re at regardless of how well other people seem to be doing.

“Comparison really is the thief of joy.”

The music video for the song featured a special guest appearance from Finneas.

The multi-instrumentalist and producer’s fifth album is set for release on October 8 via Polydor. It was recently pushed back from its original September 10 release due to vinyl pressing delays amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Blake’s first full-length album in two years will include guest appearances from SZA, JID & SwaVay, and Monica Martin.

Blake recently said that he wants to make “plenty more” music with Dave.

The musician contributed vocals and production Dave’s latest record, We’re All Alone In This Together, which came out this summer and followed on from the rapper’s 2019 debut Psychodrama.

“I think [Dave] kind of wanted me to executive produce the record, but in the end he was making all the decisions,” Blake told GQ. “Halfway through the record I was like: ‘Hold on, you’re exec producing this and you’re brilliant at it, so let’s just finish it off.’”
