Recently, the talented Mr. James Blake announced a string of tour dates with vague promises of new album details to come later. Today, Blake revealed that the record will be called Overgrown and it comes out on April 8 via Republic. Blake will premiere a song called “Retrograde” later today.
A live version of the track was recently posted on Blake’s official Tumblr and features the soulful sounds JB’s accustomed you to, with him on the keys, brought along by the beat of hand claps. “Retrograde” will get its official premiere on Zane Lowe’s BBC 1 Radio show today at 7:30 GMT (2:30 EST), but check out the live version below.
Update: The new song is up. Listen to “Retrograde” below.
