In 2019, the GRAMMY Museum welcomed James Blake for a conversation about his newest album, Assume Form. After the colossal success of his first three albums, James Blake has reinvented his entire artistic process and managed to produce the best work of his career so far. The stunning Assume Form, an album about the power of love and relationships, builds on his reputation of being one of music’s most essential collaborators, while showing the world his growth as a solo artist. In 2016, he worked with Beyoncé and Frank Ocean, on their respective industry-shattering projects Lemonade and Blonde. He followed those achievements with work on Jay Z’s 4:44 in 2017 and teamed up with Kendrick Lamar on 2018’s Damn and the OST for Black Panther, helping craft streaming sensations “King's Dead” and "Bloody Waters.” On Travis Scott’s massive 2018 hit album ASTROWORLD, Blake’s vocal on “Stop Trying To Be God’ was a critical highlight, and the duo performed together at the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards. Travis Scott is a guest on Assume Form alongside superstars like Metro Boomin, André 3000, Moses Sumney, and Rosalía.
