Having received almost universally positive reviews on release of his self-titled debut album last Friday, James Blake hit the BBC Radio 1 studio yesterday and took on an unlikely cover for Zane Lowe.

The minimalist dub-soul experimentalist let his folk influences out with a stark rendition of Joni Mitchell's 'A Case Of You', which Lowe described as "amazing" after the performance.

Blake recently explained his love for Joni to The Scotsman.
"Joni Mitchell's album 'Blue' totally destroyed me and then built me back up again. Second year at uni, I listened to it every day for six months. Every diary entry would have read, 'Got up, made toast, put on Blue.' But it was music that always stayed in my room - I never listened to it outside. Actually, come to think of it, I never went outside much that year."

In the same interview Blake also responded to the idea that growing media hype has put a lot of pressure on his shoulders.
"Pressure isn't real - it just isn't. I can't make my album any better now it's done. My attitude to everything has always been: do the most honest job you can."
