Elijah Blake’s highly anticipated Def Jam debut, Shadows & Diamonds, isn’t set to arrive for another week on June 23, but today Vevo decides to surprise his fans and offer up a free stream for those who can’t wait another seven days.
Another album stream for your listening pleasure today. We've already received streams for Tinashe's Aquarius album, and two Prince albums, Art Official Age and PlectrumElectrum. Elijah Blake now lets go his Drift EP to stream on Spotify.
