James Blake has unveiled a new Assume Form bonus track “Mulholland.” Previously only available on the vinyl release of the record, it’s now been made available online and added as the penultimate track on the deluxe version of the album. The song is a beautifully stark piano-based ballad with pitch-shifted vocals that repeat the refrain “They are just now understanding me.”
Assume Form was released in January and is the fourth studio album from the British artist. The feature-heavy record sees contributions from Moses Sumney, Travis Scott, André 3000, Rosalía, and Metro Boomin.
Assume Form (Deluxe) is out now on streaming platforms, with a physical release set for May 10.
