James Blake Announces New Song 'You're Too Precious' in ACL Fest Interview: Exclusive

James Blake revealed that new music is on the way in a chat with Billboard during this weekend's Austin City Limits Music Festival.

"I am about to drop something, a song that I am really excited about," he said. "The title is 'You're Too Precious.'"

Blake confirmed that this tidbit is one he hasn't talked about previously, as he hasn't "done any interviews for a while."

The new song follows Blake's fourth studio album, Assume Form, which was released in January. Beyond "You're Too Precious," he's been keeping busy creating more new material -- but he's not committing to any specific plan for releasing more tunes just yet.

"We'll see what kind of takes material form," Blake told Billboard. "With all this stuff, I am guilty of kind of making a promise to myself before I know I can keep it sometimes with songs, or with albums, or whatever. This time, I just wanna keep the innocence of being in a room and just making some music and not really caring where it goes."

Blake was on 2019's ACL Music Festival lineup on Saturday (Oct. 5). The fest runs over two weekends, from Oct. 4-6 and Oct. 11-13, at Austin's Zilker Park.
