This year has been crazy for James Blake. After releasing a few EPs, he was able to put out his first full-length, James Blake a debut that was met with much critical acclaim. Next, he released a more subdued, follow-up EP, Enough Thunder, that had fans swooning. Though there may only be a few short weeks left in this year, Blake is not slowing down. He instead is continuing his hot streak and releasing another EP, Love What Happened Here, set to drop on 12/11. He has already given us a preview of one track, and now he is giving us another.

"At Birth," which premiered on a Belgian radio show, showcases Blake's talent for making a lot out of a little. A warped piano, bass drum, and a few bleeps and bloops of a synthesizer work together to create an atmospheric track that swims around your head. Blake doesn't really sing on the track but samples and loops his voice, utilizing its timbre as if it were just any other instrument. It's a heady tune that needs a close listen, and you can do just that right down below.
