It’s the first taster from his new album, Canyon Songs, which is described as having
“a strong country flavour and a much more open and accessible sound”.
Although still a cult act at home, Blake is a household name in France where his co-authoring of two songs for Gallic icon Francoise Hardy last year earned him a gold disc.
Nothing if not versatile, he’s also been commissioned along with Julie Andrews, Jay Leno, Will Smith, Madonna and Kylie to write a story for a new children’s book.
And they say musicians are lazy!
