We so happy that this new track ‘Retrograde’ the first single from new James Blake LP ‘Overgrown’ is actually really good! Some of his output since his last LP did not dazzle us, as much as we loved the first LP James lack of songwriting ability was clear as all best songs were covers. From listening to ‘Retrograde’ you can hear how much his songwriting has improved which makes us very happy, with his amazing production talents and voice plus some killer songs he will be a serious musical force.
Only an official low quality Radio rip for now, video comes out on the 10/02 at 5pm on his YouTube channel.
It has a real Soul Gospel vibe the bit in the middle where he vocally lets rip is killer. ‘Retrograde’ is released on the 11th of February and the Album ‘Overgrown’ is out on 8th of April. If the rest of LP is like ‘Retrograde’ it’s going to be a big year for James Blake!!
