James Blake, Anderson .Paak and JID Drops New Music on Vault App

    In a groundbreaking move that promises to reshape the music industry landscape, British musician James Blake has unveiled his latest venture: Vault, an innovative app designed to empower artists and revolutionize how fans access and support their favorite musicians.

    The announcement comes hot on the heels of Blake’s collaboration with acclaimed artists Anderson .Paak and JID on a new track titled “Affection,” exclusively released through the Vault app. This collaboration marks yet another milestone in Blake’s illustrious career, which has seen him collaborate with some of the biggest names in hip hop and R&B, including Kendrick Lamar, Beyoncé, Drake, JAY-Z, and Travis Scott.

    Launched earlier this month, Vault offers artists a platform to share unreleased tracks directly with their fans, bypassing traditional streaming services and providing a new revenue stream for creators. For a subscription fee of $5 per month, fans gain access not only to “Affection” but also to four other exclusive songs already released by Blake through the app.

    The decision to partner with Vault stems from Blake’s vocal advocacy for fair compensation for artists in an industry increasingly dominated by streaming platforms and social media. In a recent Instagram video, Blake highlighted the stark reality of artists’ earnings from streaming services, citing figures that underscore the financial challenges faced by musicians.

    With Vault, James Blake aims to address these challenges by enabling artists to monetize their music directly, without relying on intermediaries or succumbing to industry pressures. By subscribing to an artist’s Vault, fans can directly support their favorite musicians and gain access to exclusive content, all while ensuring that creators receive fair compensation for their work.

    Blake’s journey to Vault was fueled by a series of impassioned social media posts earlier this month, in which he raised awareness about the financial struggles of artists and the need for a more equitable music ecosystem. His message struck a chord with fellow musicians, including Kanye West and Tyler, The Creator, who echoed his sentiments and expressed solidarity with his cause.

    For James Blake, Vault represents more than just a platform for releasing music—it’s a revolutionary concept that has the potential to liberate artists from the constraints of the current music industry paradigm. By putting the power back in the hands of creators and fans alike, Vault promises to usher in a new era of artistic freedom and financial sustainability for musicians worldwide.
