Vince Staples and Bon Iver join James Blake at Glastonbury
With the highly-anticipated release and positive reception of his latest album The Colour In Everything, James Blake has had a strong start to 2016. Likewise, his set at this year’s Glastonbury Festival was also due to be a highlight. To imbue his performance with another measure of exclusivity, Blake invited frequent collaborator Justin Vernon of Bon Iver and Californian rapper Vince Staples to join him on stage.
Unsurprisingly, Vernon joined Blake in performing their most recent collusion, the haunting “I Need A Forest Fire.”

Staples, however, has yet to officially collaborate with the British songsmith, though he has confirmed that Blake will be providing some production on his upcoming EP, Prima Donna. At Glastonbury, Staples provided a verse on Blake’s “Timeless,” another track from The Colour in Everything.
Staple’s contribution is available to watch above, while Blake’s entire set can be streamed on the BBC’s site.
