During one of his recent stopovers in New York while on tour with Fiona Apple, we had the pleasure of having the very busy Blake Mills down to our Ditmas Park home studio. As a summer storm rolled in, Blake set up with just his acoustic guitar, and blew us away with a fantastic performance of “It’ll All Work Out” and a new song called “Don’t Tell Your Friends About Me”.
The room, which we cleared out save for a vintage General Electric TV, served as a sparse and simple space in which to showcase Blake’s earnest and beautiful songs. The thunderstorm, which I was worried was going to be a major problem, ended up complimenting “It’ll All Work Out” incredibly well. Watch both below and snag the free downloads under the videos.
