James Blake builds on the material released by Blake as three EPs in 2010: The Bells Sketch, CMYK and Klavierwerke. All three EPs have differing musical styles.

James Blake (born 26 September 1988) is a Grammy-nominated electronic musician and singer-songwriter from London, England, United Kingdom. Blake is primarily considered a dubstep producer and is frequently heralded as a leading figure in the "post-dubstep" community, but he is also noted for his prominent soul influences. Blake was nominated the Critic's Choice award by the 2011 BRIT Awards and the Sound of 2011 award by the BBC, and won second place in the latter. In addition, his self-titled debut LP, James Blake, was nominated for the 2011 Mercury Prize.
The album is heavily inspired by James Blake’s relationship with actress Jameela Jamil, whom Blake has been in a relationship with since 2015. On December 4, 2018, James Blake announced a North American tour that stretched from February to March 2019. This announcement ignited rumors of an ensuing album since Blake had not released an album since early 2016.
