Alternative musician and producer James Blake returns with the first new music since last year’s ‘Playing Robots Into Heaven’. Yesterday, he surprisingly released a brand new single titled ‘Thrown Around’, which is Blake’s first new music as an independant artist in quite a while.

‘Thrown Around’ is one hell of a track and is slowly creeping up to be on of our favourite James’ tracks in a long time. The new single tackles many different genres with touches of alternative pop and dance creating a massive banger. This is reminding us slightly of Radiohead in parts mixed with Madona’s ‘Ray of Light’. About the new single James mentions:

“‘Thrown Around’ is a nod to some of the music I grew up listening to, growing up in England. It started as an ambient piece that I made with Dom Maker, that connected something very deep in me to the influence of British electronic bands. It’s a defiant song that’s wrestling with where our job takes us, what it does to our life. It deals with the draw backs of spending so much time dedicated to work. We don’t have any drives towards community – we are all driven towards success. Then we feel lonely and Thrown Around. This song brings people together – it is the connection through defiance.

Thrown Around‘ is out now on all platforms via CMYK.
