James Blake and Lil Yachty have announced that they’re set to release a new collaborative album, Bad Cameo.

The pair’s new joint project was revealed by Yachty in a new Instagram video, in which he explained that the album will see both artists leave their comfort zone.

“I think James has worked with a quite substantial amount of hip hop artists, but this project is so left for both of us,” he said.

Yachty added: “Then, aside from the one picture that James posted, which he doesn’t have many followers actually, I don’t think people know that we know each other exist.”

See the video below, as well as footage of an unreleased track from the album being played by Blake at a recent edition of his CMYK club night.

Bad Cameo will follow Yachty’s pivot into psych-rock on 2023 album Let’s Start Here, while Blake also released a new album, Playing Robots Into Heaven, last year.
