James Blake's follow-up to 2016's The Colour in Anything could be coming as soon as this month. As the Fader reports, the album, reportedly called Assume Form, is set to be released Jan. 25.  

That release date is unconfirmed, but a website featuring the album's title and a snippet of new music played on a loop that Shazam identifies as "Lullaby for My Insomniac" recently surfaced. On Friday (Jan. 4) night, an LED billboard projecting the words "Assume Form" appeared in London, and a similar one later turned up in New York's Times Square. Blake posted a video of the Times Square display to his Instagram story.   

  

Assume Form is also rumored to feature guests like André 3000 and Travis Scott. Earlier this year, Blake appeared on "King's Dead" --which peaked at No. 21 on the Hot 100-- with Jay Rock, Kendrick Lamar and Future.  

Check out video of the two Assume Form displays below.
