Over the last week, various sighting of posters and billboards hinting at the artwork for James Blake’s latest release have been appearing on Instagram and Twitter, with the record label 1-800 Dinosaur posting a photo of a large four-panel mural in London on Facebook.
In each case the posters displayed the unmistakable ink and watercolour work (not to mention handwriting) of Sir Quentin Blake.
Earlier on today, the final album cover and also a tour poster were revealed on James Blake’s Twitter and Instagram accounts. There’s now also a video, below, for the first track off the release, I Need a Forest Fire – essentially a long close-up of bursts of paint from Blake’s watercolour work.
