However, there is one roadblock, as the Grammy nominated Blake tells Rolling Stone that he does not want to work in separate locations.  Blake says "You know, the way that I like to work is bare bones and personal. I think because Kanye's such an accomplished producer, if I was to work with him, then I think we could do something together, and just together, you know?"

Last November, Kanye West proclaimed that James Blake was his favorite artist. Kanye is rumored to be working on a new album, a follow up to 2013's Yeezus.

In the interview, Blake also reacts to all the speculation on him working with hip hop artists as he says:

Honestly, I spend so much fucking time talking about Kanye West and Chance [the Rapper] and Drake. People ask me so much about it, but really up until this point, I haven't had any time to act on any impulse, so all I can say is we'll see and watch this space but there's things coming. I'm really excited. My monotonous tone of voice won't show you that, but I'm excited."
