Of all the livestreams that have been happening recently, the one we could not miss was James Blake‘s. The English music mastermind took to Instagram earlier today to stream himself performing songs by himself and covers of others. It was a brief set, but it was nothing short of brilliant.
Among the songs he performed were Radiohead‘s “No Surprises,” Frank Ocean‘s “Godspeed,” and Billie Eilish‘s “when the party’s over.” Each one of these covers were absolutely spot-on with a little James Blake twist.
This is something that you would only hear at a live show. James treated us to something special this afternoon, and we’ve found videos of each of these three covers. Check them out below and enjoy!
