James Blake: “The Limit to Your Love (Feist cover)”, directed by Martin de Thurah.

I’ve been hoping and waiting for an official recording of this cover for over a year now, since first hearing and being crushed by the opening few minutes of James Blake’s contribution to the Electronic Explorations Podcast. So I’m incredibly thrilled to find out that it’s going to appear on his full-length debut early next year.

James now rounds off an unparalleled year of discovery by unveiling one of the most stunning male vocals to emerge this millennium. …Re-worked, recorded and produced entirely alone in his bedroom, this single is also the first time listener will have had the chance to hear James’ incredibly soulful voice. Matching a heart-stoppingly emotional delivery to a speaker-busting, foundation-crumbling bassline, this is a simply exceptional piece of music, the natural successor to Massive Attack’s “Unfinished Sympathy” as the ultimate expression of UK urban emotion. “Limit To Your Love” is more than just a cover, it’s a glimpse into James Blake’s world.
