James Blake was already an acclaimed musician before 2020, when his rendition of Frank Ocean’s “Godspeed” went viral on TikTok. He capped off the year with his EP Before, a project that saw Blake return to his dancefloor beginnings. And yet, with everything on his plate, he still found some time to kill with us.

Perhaps he was distracted by his garish American flag spatula? Spend the whole day with Blake in the video above.
