RZA, Brian Eno Appearing on James Blake’s New ‘Overgrown’ Album

James Blake

James Blake has revealed more details about his second album. Due out April 9th through Republic, Overgrown features 10 new tracks, including a couple profile-raising collaborations with Brian Eno (“Digital Lion”) and RZA (“Take a Fall for Me”). Here’s how his label describes it:

As a whole, Overgrown stands marked by the artist’s staunch adherence to progression. The stylistic elements that enchanted fans and critics the first time around serve as building blocks for a more dynamic and diverse listening experience. Moments of darkness fade into genuine bliss as he bends the foundations of post-dubstep, pop, hip hop, and house to his whim.

Check out the record’s joyless cover and soulful lead single below, along with the producer/singer’s spring tour dates…
