Two years after the release of his last solo LP, Friends That Break Your Heart, James Blake is delivering his sixth studio album later this year. The 11-track Playing Robots Into Heaven will be available everywhere on September 8 via Republic Records, but until then, the singer-songwriter-producer has shared the lead single from the record, “Big Hammer.” Watch the official music video below.

Ten days after the release of the new album, Blake will be going on a 14-date international headline tour, starting at Milan’s Fabrique and going to several cities across Europe before heading to North America. The tour ends in October at Los Angeles’ Hollywood Forever Cemetary.
