Sony/ATV Music Publishing has signed a long-term deal with James Blake. Applying to all the known world, it’ll cover all forthcoming James Blake releases, not least a follow-on to his 2013 LP ‘Overgrown’, which, Sony/ATV confirms, will arrive next year, potentially featuring ‘collabs’ with Kanye West and/or Justin Vernon.

Commenting on the new alliance, Sony/ATV’s Creative Director Tyler Childs says: “James Blake is one of the premier artists of this generation. We’re thrilled to work in partnership with him and Dan and for the world to hear all of James’ incredible new songs”.

The exact ‘Dan’ he means is Blake’s manager Dan Foat, who adds (a bit archly, I think): “I had a great Sony Walkman when I was younger and we’re really looking forward to working with Sony/ATV”.
