James Blake, ROSALIA – Barefoot In The Park

On Friday James Blake’s latest album was released. Assume Form has jumped to the top of every hipster’s ‘must listen to’ lists and features a number of star collaborators, including Andre 3000, Travis Scott and Moses Sumney.

But it’s his duet with Catalan-born flamenco star ROSALIA that has truly won my heart.

There’s something magical about the track. It feels so enticing, but never quite real. You don’t want to move in case the spell is broken. Emotionally it first feels joyous, but there’s a lurking edge of darkness that creeps into the corner of your eye.

I have no idea what the Spanish lyrics say and I have no desire to know. This track is simply beautiful as it is right now, so please don’t break the spell.
