Yesterday, James Blake delighted fans with a free Instagram Live concert, where he covered songs by Frank Ocean, Billie Eilish, and others.

Blake took to Twitter to announce the show, referencing our collective self-isolation. "Ok looks like we’re in this for the long haul so I’m jumping in... gotta play for you guys somehow." He then asked for requests, cheekily adding that he will be opening with the Lennon's "Imagine," a reference to last week's extremely cringe celebrity rendition.

Blake went live from his living room and kicked things off with a cover of Radiohead's "No Surprises." Later, he sang Billie Eilish's "when the party's over" and Frank Ocean's "Godspeed," along with songs by Bill Wither and Joni Mitchell. He performed some of his own songs too, such as "Life Round Here" and "Retrograde."

The Instagram Live concert kicked off yesterday at 12pm EST and had around 26,000 fans tuning in. Check out some of Blake's best covers below.
