James Blake Returns in a Big Way with “Retrograde”

James Blake Returns in a Big Way with “Retrograde”

By Joseph JP Patterson | February 12, 2013

James Blake is back with some new crooning material for our ears. The 24-year-old British singer-songwriter has been locked up in his studio putting together his April 8-released second album, Overgrown. Following his successful self-titled debut two years ago, Blake’s got a lot to live up to. But if his new single, “Retrograde”, is anything to go by, he’s already got it on lock. The stringy synths, repetitive claps and moody keys plays as a perfect backdrop for James Blake’s epic vocal performance. The track’s build-up is just emo… Forward-thinking R&B in its finest hour. See the artsy visuals for “Retrograde” below.
