After confirming last summer that Justin Vernon and Kanye West would be on his new album, Radio Silence — and, more recently, that he’d appear on this year’s Eaux Claires festival lineup — James Blake has shared the first listen since 2014’s U.K. dubstep-indebted “Building It Still.” “Modern Soul,” which he slipped into his BBC 1 Radio show, features the London singer and producer’s signature velvet-rubbed vibrato over a simply looped piano line.
