James Blake says his next album is 70 percent finished, but it's the 30 percent that's up in the air that has us most excited. The English says he's expecting to have a Kanye West collaboration before the album drops sometime in 2015. 

"I have a lot of respect for [Kanye], for what he has been releasing for years," Blake told the Miami New Times. "We haven't done a great deal of work in the same room yet, but we've done a few things, kind of helped each other with our own music. In terms of the actual collaboration for this record, it looks like we should be able to get something done. I know that there's a specific song I would like him to be on, and if he can do that by the time my record comes out, that would be fantastic."

It's not exactly a guarantee, but Blake seems more confident in the collaboration happening than he did earlier this year. In February he said, "I'm not sure there's any fucking point in telling you because it just ends up on a website and then people think it's happening and it doesn't happen and then I feel like a shit…I hope I haven’t offended anybody."
