Dean Blunt - "King James"

New MusictheneedledropComment

Dean Blunt, best known as one half of London duo Hype Williams, has dropped a new single titled "King James." The track continues the decidedly reserved and introspective lyrical themes of the LP he put out earlier this year, The Redeemer; but the warm orchestral arrangements on that album are forwent in favor of a minimalist composition of a distant vocal sample enveloped by a cold comb filter effect.

"King James" appears as the third track on Blunt's new album Stone Island, abruptly self-released for free stream and download earlier this week on the Russian site Афиша.
