What did we do to deserve James Blake and Rosalía?, Having teamed up for “Barefoot in the Park” earlier this year, both artists return today with the video for the stunning Assume Form cut.

Directed by Diana Kunst and Mau Morgo, the clip sees James and Rosalía walking alongside what seem to be younger versions of themselves, with the visual coming bookended by a shot of a fiery car crash that appears to represent both the beginning and the end of the two’s relationship.

James Blake has released a new song called ‘Don’t Miss It’, it’s a collaboration with Dom Maker from UK duo Mount Kimbie.

Following the gorgeous track’s premiere during Blake’s BBC Radio 1 residency on Thursday, the track has been uploaded to YouTube, with a clip that puts a neat smartphone notes spin on the traditional lyrics video. This gorgeous song follows on from January’s glitchy ‘If The Car Besides You Moves Ahead’ and a string of recent collaborations.

Earlier this month, Blake played piano on one of André 3000’s two surprise new tracks – the 17-minute jazz jam ‘Look Ma No Hands’. Before that, he contributed to Jay Rock’s ‘King’s Dead‘, on the Black Panthersoundtrack and provided vocals to Mount Kimbie’s song ‘We Go Home Together‘, and a bonus track from Jay-Z’s 4:44, ‘MaNyfaCedGod’.

James Blake’s last full-length album was 2016’s The Colour In Everything.

As our rolling Welsh hills are warmed up by the past week’s wonderful weather, it’s not long now ‘til we descend on the glorious Brecon Beacons for reclining in the rays and imbibing inspirational music from this year’s guests!

We’ve kept you waiting, but we think she’s worth the wait.. We’re over the moon to reveal our fourth and final headliner, in the majestical form of Laura Marling, the enchanting folk goddess returns for her third performance at GM. Her legendary performances have always gone down a storm at Green Man and we’re already feeling awestruck imagining her playing new material in her Saturday night set on the Mountain Stage in 2016.

We are very happy to announce that Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros will be joining us at the fourteenth Green Man. With new album ‘PersonA’ imminent – and a stage-hogging 10 members in tow – their big band, beach-licked grooves will be a glorious addition to the (already glorious) Brecon Beacons.

Making a very welcome return are Nottinghamshire veterans Tindersticks (official), whose atmospheric introspections – now 25 years in the game – still sound uniquely their own. Sister act The Unthanks return, too, with kind offerings of soft-lit folk. After rocking the Green Man Boat Party, Slow Club are sure to turn a few heads with their indie pop.

Glitch-rockers SUUNS are booked in to deliver a lesson in head-nodding intensity, with Portishead descended Beak> specialising in intense drone-fuelled thuddery. KEVIN MORBY, with a new album due any minute, will have feet tapping to the beat of his woozy indie, perfect when supping an ale from the Courtyard.
