James Blake premieres new track on Radio 1

Mercury Prize winning producer James Blake joined Jamie xx, who was covering for Benji B on his Radio 1 show last night, to premiere a new track.

The currently untitled track was aired for the first time during the show's 2am-4am timeslot, but Blake failed to confirm whether this new work would appear on his next album.

The producer confirmed earlier this year that his forthcoming full-length was "half finished" and would include collaborations with Kanye West and Bon Iver's Justin Vernon.
