James Blake

As mentioned, James Blake will release his sophomore full length album, Overgrown, on April 8 via Atlas/Republic, and he's just revealed the artwork (above) and the tracklist (below). Most interestingly, the tracklist reveals that there is a song called "Digital Lion," which will feature contributions from Brian Eno, and a song called "Take a Fall For Me," which will feature rapping from the RZA. In the words of Katy Perry, take that, Bon Iver.

James will also be going on a tour in support of the album, which comes to NYC on May 9 at Terminal 5. Tickets for that show are still available. He recently expanded the tour to include more international shows. Check out an updated list of dates and the video for Overgrown single, "Retrograde," below.

Meanwhile, Brian Eno has an upcoming event in NYC too, as part of Red Bull Music Academy. He'll be presenting the NYC premiere of his audio-visual installation, 77 Million Paintings, in May, along with an "illustrate talk" at Cafe Rouge on May 6. Tickets to that, and all other RBMA shows, go on sale March 4 at 10 AM.
