It stands out as the latest single from his critically acclaimed 2021 album, Friends That Break Your Heart, out now via Republic Records. The album notably marks Blake’s first new full-length album in three years. Right out of the gate, it attracted universal applause.
In the cinematic visual for “Famous Last Words,” Blake wakes up in a hospital bed, removing his oxygen mask to sing the first verse. The camera follows him on a surreal journey through the night before he finds peace once again. It eloquently captures the tension and release of the album opener and continues a tradition of provocative and powerful visuals.
Not to mention, “Famous Last Words” has already amassed over 6 million streams with NME calling it “pulsating” and Stereogum noted, “‘Famous Last Words,’ features pulsing synths that gradually swell into grand orchestral majesty.”
Earlier this Fall, James Blake announced his 2022 UK and Europe tour dates. Produced by Live Nation, the 11-show tour will kick off on April 30th in Glasgow at the O2 Academy and wrap with a final show at London’s Alexandra Palace on May 17th. Tickets are on-sale now via JamesBlakeMusic.com.
