Following the release of one of the notable debuts of the year with his track “Prism of Love” ft. JONES, London artist Blakey returns in stunning form with his second offering “Future Skies”. Listen here
Picking up New Music Fridays in 7 countries with nearly 2 million cumulative streams and counting, Blakey’s first offering demanded attention. Going straight into the Spotify Viral Top 50 in 8 different counties further underlined Blakey’s talent as both a singer/songwriter and producer.
His second release on 37 Adventures demonstrates that incredible vocal once more. It seems to slow time down around you, with a piano-led instrumental that builds into a refreshingly innovative, stripped back bounce of a chorus.
Of Future Skies, Blakey said “it encapsulates a moment in time at the end of a 6-month journey; purgatory, self-cleansing, healing and realisation of what a future can hold, if you have the strength to try and grasp it and to finally let go of things you never imagined you could let go of. There is huge strength in that.”
As was such the defining factor with ‘Prism of Love’, it’s again Blakey’s unmistakable talent for the songwriting craft that’s once plainly evident. Poignant and vivid, ‘Future Skies’ spins a celebratory tone and melody that marks the track out as a bonafide crossover gem, and with it, cements Blakey as one of the brightest young songwriting talents coming out of the city right now.
