James Blake Longs for Love on New Single ‘Loading’


James Blake has shared "Loading," a pulsating new single from his upcoming LP, Playing Robots Into Heaven.

The album, Blake's sixth studio effort, will be released on September 8 through Republic Records.

The musician previously teased the release with "Big Hammer", which sampled Ragga Twins, and was accompanied by a music video directed by Oscar Hudson.

"Loading" was co-produced by Blake and Dom Maker, with additional production by Rob McAndrews and Jameela Jamil.

"Wherever I go, I'm only as good as my mind," Blake sings on the track. "It's only good when you're mine."

Playing Robots Into Heaven, like its predecessor Friends That Break Your Heart, finds Blake reconnecting with his electronic music roots, similar to his acclaimed debut EP.

While it is considered Blake's sixth studio LP and the follow-up to 2021's Friends That Break Your Heart,

The artist released an album of ambient music titled Wind Down in 2022, which used AI technology and acted as a sleep aid.

The musician also recently appeared on Metro Boomin's Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse standout "Hummingbird".
