People aren't always the biggest fans of New Year's resolutions, but here's one that we think you'll like.

James Blake says his 2020 resolution is “to spend more time at [his] instrument than at a laptop," and as part of that, he's released a cover of Frank Ocean's Godspeed off Frank's 2016 album Blonde.

It's a song that James says he "helped write", which is underselling his part in making the track a bit, given he's credited with production, arrangement and keyboard contributions on the track. Given his intimate knowledge of the track, it's not much surprise that he's smashed it out of the park.

If you enjoy the cover (which, how could you not), then make sure to let James know. He says he'll release more covers if people like the Godspeed cover, and that's something we need more of in our lives.

Check out his cover below - you'll be thinking about it all day.
