James Blake explains the elusive title of this new unreleased track over and over again, ultimately making up the drama in “I Never Learnt To Share”. Blake’s quivering, vulnerable voice sings “My brother and my sister don’t speak to me / But I don’t blame them”. As the song progresses, this lone line is doubled, then tripled and finally looped into postmodern minimalistic oblivion. Take a listen while you still can:

This track may or may not be on James Blake’s debut album, due out in 2011. Make sure to check out Blake’s exquisite cover of Feist’s “Limit to Your Love”.
