James Blake Shared Jamie xx's New Single And Nobody Realized
  • FRIDAY, APRIL 18, 2014

You may have heard Jamie xx's second single without ever knowing it. Last night during James Blake's monthly residency on BBC Radio 1, the UK artist revealed that he played Jamie xx's "Girl" under the guise of Simon Tallywhacker's "Bloke" during the previous month's installment, and we all believed it, because Jimmy Blake is too damned cool to be a liar. Tallywhacker?! What a cheap dad joke!

Listen to "Girl" below. Blake starts speaking around the 10-minute mark, and he drops clues like crazy. "Girl" is off Jamie xx's first solo single in three years, and will be released May 5th on Young Turks.



Last night's installment also included some cryptic comedy as Blake interviewed the mysterious DJ Badger, who many suspect was Stephen Merchant.
