James Blake at the Orpheum Theatre, Vancouver, on Thursday night. The British singer/songwriter is on tour for his third album, The Colour in Anything.
Guests include Frank Ocean and Justin Vernon, as well as Connan Mockasin, who plays bass on a song. Rick Rubin produced seven of the 76-minute album’s 17 tracks. Much of The Colour in Anything was mixed and mastered at Rubin’s Shangri-La studios in Malibu.
Blake was born James Blake Litherland in 1988. He first received recognition in 2010 for a trio of dubstep-influenced EPs, including The Bells Sketch, CMYK, and Klavierwerke. In 2011 he released his self-titled debut album in UK. His second studio album Overgrown (2013) was awarded the Mercury Prize.
