For his run of December shows in the US, James Blake has been surprising fans by covering Aqua's "Barbie Girl".

Blake played two shows in LA last week, and two in NYC this week, and had a number of interesting covers on his setlist.

As well as performing his Assume Form tracks, Blake played some songs from his The Colour in Anything LP and 2013's Overgrown.

The singer/songwriter also performed a number of covers, including Billie Eilish's "When The Party’s Over", Frank Ocean's "Godspeed", Bill Withers' "Hope She'll Be Happier", and Don McLean's "Vincent".

Blake also performed a surprising cover of Aqua's "Barbie Girl". Check out footage below.

Speaking about his new music earlier this week, James Blake said he's "trying to dive into the most free, un-self-conscious part of myself."
