Listen to James Blake’s cover of Simon and Garfunkel’s “The Sound of Silence”

James Blake returned to BBC Radio 1’s Residency last night, and was joined by Justin Vernon from Bon Iver, as Pitchfork pointed out. The two talked about a number of topics and Blake closed the show by playing a cover of Simon & Garfunkel’s “The Sound Of Silence,” which was dedicated to a friend who passed away in New Year’s Eve. Even though he swaps his rippling guitar for his usual synths, creating a minimal, faithful cover, listen to it here. Hear the entire mix here via the BBC.
