SEE JAMES BLAKE?S NEW VIDEO FOR THE TITLE TRACK, ?OVERGROWN? (DIRECTED BY NABIL) BELOW!!!!

Nabil Elderkin, the filmmaking mastermind behind videos for everyone from Antony to Kanye, has shot a beautiful video for James Blake‘s “Overgrown” from the album of the same name. It’s a characteristically surreal nighttime trek through forests and hills haunted with spirits (and a very meditative James Blake). **Pitchfork**

OVERGROWN VIDEO:

JAMES BLAKE “OVERGROWN” IN STORES NOW
COACHELLA APPEARANCES APRIL 14 & 21 TO KICK OF US SPRING HEADLINE TOUR
PRE-ORDER NABS THE #1 SPOT ON ITUNES ELECTRONIC ALBUMS CHART

Before its official release, Overgrown has received immense acclaim from fans and press alike. Counting Kanye West, Stevie Wonder, Jay-Z, and Joni Mitchell amongst a myriad of high-profile supporters, the press reaction has been overwhelmingly positive to say the least. Cultural cornerstone US Weekly officially joins “Team BLAKE” bestowing 3-out-of-4 stars on the album days before its release. Meanwhile, UK international tastemaker NME gave the offering a rating of 8-out-of-10. Internationally, it’s topped iTunes charts globally, reaching #1 in Denmark, #2 in Germany and Australia, and #3 in the UK.

The first single “Retrograde” offered a gateway into this landscape with rapturous synths and his potent vocals. Elsewhere, the title track builds from soft piano into an emotional and evocative refrain. Delicate electronics warble next to his warm falsetto on “Take a Fall for Me” as legendary Wu-Tang Clan leader RZA slides through a wisely wild verse. The conclusion, “Our Love Comes Back”, strains an angelic melody through resounding piano chords punctuated by elegant electronics. Each subsequent listen offers a different yet divine experience.

BLAKE will kick off his tour in the United States at the sold out Coachella Festival on April 14 and then return for the second weekend April 21. In addition, he’ll be headlining his own tour beginning April 16, allowing listeners to dive into his world headfirst.Upon releasing his eponymous first collection stateside,?JAMES BLAKE?was instantly embraced by both music fans and critical gatekeepers.
