Blake announced Friends That Break Your Heart in July with the single “Say What You Will”. It was originally scheduled for release on September 10th. Following the Assume Form of 2019, Blake released two EPs last year: Covers and Before. He has also contributed to new projects from slowthai, Starrah, Flatbush Zombies AND kt. He plans to tour the USA in the fall.
