That name has been revealed and it's none other than....falsetto-hitting, bass-rumbling, piano-playing UK artist James Blake. His dubsteppy R&B should make a good addition to the rest of the varied acts already on the Governors Ball lineup. 

When we talked to Blake in 2016 he mentioned some of his favorite things to do around town....maybe you'll see him at Habana Outpost before the gig?
