[News] James Blake Details New LP, Stream Lead Single

Just last week, James Blake announced that his sophomore album, the follow-up to his impressive 2011 self-titled debut, was to be released later this year. Today, though, he slipped some exciting information into the blogosphere, announcing that the album will be titled Overgrown and is set to release on April 8th.

Blake also announced that later today, the lead single from the album, titled "Retrograde", will premiere on BBC Radio 1. We will post the radio stream once its available, but in the meantime you can stream a live concert recording of the song below. As well, after the jump, you can check out all the dates for Blake's upcoming North American tour.

UPDATE: You can now stream the radio rip of the single, which premiered on Zane Lowe's BBC Radio 1 show, below. The song starts at around 1:09, after some charming banter between Blake and Lowe.
