Singer-producer James Blake is heading to New Zealand in July.

Six years after performing a sold-out show at Auckland's Town Hall in 2012, Blake will return to play Auckland's Shed 10 on July 17 before heading to Australia's Splendour in the Grass festival.

The show follows the January release of Blake's critically-acclaimed fourth record Assume Form, which the New Zealand Herald praised as the artist's "most emotionally mature - and sonically interesting - album to date".

Blake most recently shared the video for single Barefoot in the Park, featuring Spanish flamenco-pop singer Rosalía.


Assume Form, said to be written largely about Blake's relationship with actress Jameela Jamil, also features collaborations with Travis Scott, Moses Sumney, Outkast's André 3000 and Metro Boomin.
