James Blake Debuts "40455" + Beyoncé & Mystikal Remixes On BBC Radio 1

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

James Blake took to the airwaves yesterday evening to play some new tunes on BBC Radio 1. Foremost among them is his debut of a new track called "40455", which dropped alongside a Harmonimix remix of Beyoncé's "Drunk In Love" and a Mystikal mix entitled "Pay Me." Given Blake's recent Harmonimix of Destiny's Child's "Bills, Bills, Bills" it may be safe to say that he is a member of The Beyhive. Each new track features Blake's enveloping signature sound, though "40455" is a much more melancholy take peppered with solemn chords and a plodding drum pattern. Check the tracks below to listen to "40455", "Drunk In Love" (Harmonimix) and "Pay Me" (Harmonimix) from James Blake. Stay tuned for more.
