James Blake reveals more material from sophomore LP, ventures into hip hop

We’ve heard “Retrograde,” “Voyeur,” and “Digital Lion” off James Blake’s forthcoming new album¬†Overgrown¬†(set to release on April 9th), but the two most recent tracks the producer is previewing for his fans dive a little more deeply into the world of hip hop. “Take A Fall For Me” features Wu-Tang Clan frontman RZA and “Every Day I Ran” samples Big Boi’s “Royal Flush” — a clear departure from other aspects of the album we’ve heard so far. RZA clearly takes the reigns on “Take A Fall For Me,” delivering a powerful series of free association verses with Blake’s emotional production as the backdrop. Listen to it above, and check out “Every Day I Ran” on his Tumblr.
