James Blake will hopefully by now be a name familiar to anyone with ears and good taste in music. Having released his self-titled debut record to much critical acclaim earlier this year, post-dubstep’s golden boy steps forward with a new track, ‘What Was It You Said About Luck’ and what a track it is. Sparse piano and wonderfully understated synth gives Blake the chance to show off his soulful, Antony Hegarty-esque vocals that brim over with a rare emotion not often found in electronic music. Majestic, dramatic organs bring a suitably beautiful and heartfelt close to ‘What Was It You Said About Luck’ that makes it an absolute gem of a song. ‘What Was It You Said About Luck’ is one of two B-sides featured on James Blake’s new single, ‘The Wilhelm Scream’, available on 12-inch vinyl via Atlas/A&M Records in the UK, and Universal Republic in the USA.
