As everyone stayed glued to their screens for Yeezy Season this afternoon, James Blake made waves of his own on his BBC Radio 1 residency show, premiering a new song called “Modern Soul”. While Blake has been known to use the show as a platform to play unreleased tracks and other unfinished odds and ends from his catalog, the perfectly titled “Modern Soul” has an added layer of polish that hints this may be our first peek at his next album Radio Silence.

Details of the album have been sparse (although he did admit it will feature Justin Vernon and Kanye) so the piano-heavy ballad is an exciting look at the direction he may be heading in. Stream a radio rip of the track below and listen to a full replay of the show here.
