Since releasing his third album The Colour in Anything last year, James Blake has toured; brought his songwriting and production skills to Vince Staples' Prima Donna EP, Frank Ocean's Blonde, and Kendrick Lamar's DAMN.; sang alongside Ocean on Endless; and explained why he was left off Drake's "0 to 100/The Catch Up."

Now, the singer has not only revealed that he has new music coming, but that it will be dropping as early as the upcoming summer season. He also revealed that he's working on some unannounced hip-hop projects.

He told The FADER:

"I have some new music, and I am going to release some of it this summer. I’ve just been making tunes. Is it going to be singles or a project? I think I’ve probably got a few single tunes but I don’t know if they’re singles. [Laughs]. At some point I would like to release a record but at the moment I feel no need to rush myself....I’m writing as much as I can. I’ve been producing hip-hop things but I can’t talk about those yet — they’re collaborative productions and beats. It’s this constant balancing act between all the things that I like doing, and that couldn’t be more ideal to be able to do producing, making my own music, piano shows, and shows with [drummer] Ben [Assiter] and [guitarist] Rob [McAndrews]."
