James Blake – Retrograde

Zane Lowe premiered a new record from James Blake last week, as we mentioned on everyone’s favourite micro-blogging platform at the time. Well, now it has a (suitably esoteric) video and a release and everything: and it’s just lovely.

‘Retrograde’ isn’t a big departure for Blake – but, quite frankly, if we could write songs like this, big departures wouldn’t be top of our to-do list. It’s got the same saturated production, warm bass and stunning vocals as ever – and it’s just a wonderful piece of music.

His second full-length album ‘Overgrown’ is released in April, and if this is anything to go by, it’s going to be a bit special.
