Listen to James Blake's new track, 'Retrograde'
Zane Lowe got the first spin of the new James Blake track, 'Retrograde', on his BBC Radio 1 show tonight. It's the first single to be taken from his forthcoming new album, Overgrown, which is out April 8th via Republic.
You can find the stream, along with his forthcoming tour dates (including the new London show), below. It really is an absolutely stunning track, with Blakes' vocals sounding as beautiful as they ever have. Can we have a James Blake x Frank Ocean x D'Angelo collaboration soon, please?
The single is released officially on February 11th.
