THE MUSIC VIDEO FOR “FAMOUS LAST WORDS” HERE
 
CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED ALBUM FRIENDS THAT BREAK YOUR HEART OUT NOW
 

3rd November 2021, London, UK – Today Mercury Music Prize and GRAMMY® Award winning UK singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer James Blake releases the official music video for “Famous Last Words”.
 
In the cinematic visual for “Famous Last Words”, Blake wakes up in a hospital bed, removing his oxygen mask to sing the first verse. The camera follows him on a surreal journey through the night before he finds peace once again. It eloquently captures the tension and release of the album opener and continues a tradition of provocative and powerful visuals.
 
“Famous Last Words” – the latest single from Blake’s fifth studio album, Friends That Break Your Heart – has already amassed over 6 million streams with NME calling it “pulsating” while Stereogumnoted it “features pulsing synths that gradually swell into grand orchestral majesty.
 
Released on October 8th this year via Polydor in the UK and Republic Records in the US, Friends That Break Your Heart isBlake’sfirst new full-length album in two years – listen HERE. It has seen James achieve his highest ever chart position in the UK Official Album charts to date (after debuting at #4), and  attracted universal critical acclaim. It was lauded as “James Blake in his richest, rawest form” (NME); “His most beautiful work to date” (DIY); “an excellent showcase of Mr. Blake’s gifts” (The Wall Street Journal); and “a record full of mesmerisingly brilliant composition and some of the most accomplished songwriting of Blake’s career” (The i).
 
Earlier this Autumn, James Blake announced his 2022 UK and Europe tour dates. The 11-show tour will kick off on April 30th in Glasgow at the O2 Academy and wrap with a final show at London’s Alexandra Palace on May 17th. Tickets are on-sale now via JamesBlakeMusic.com.
