Premiered on Zane Lowe’s show on BBC Radio 1 was ‘Retrograde,’ the mournful new single from singer/producer James Blake, taken from his forthcoming LP Overgrown.
Speaking previously about the album, Blake said: “A lot of the vocal music I’ve been doing recently has been quite clubby… But that’s mainly because I’ve had more time to go to clubs, and that normally breeds that kind of influence. I’ve been doing quite a few DJ set recently, which have been really fun.”
He added: “I think it’s going to be a bit more aggressive, to be honest. It seems that way.” ‘Retrograde’ doesn’t suggest this direction, but perhaps it’s the tamest of all the album’s tracks.
James Blake’s second LP Overgrown will be released on April 8.
