James-blake-2013-640

James Blake has graced us with a track off of his forthcoming album, Overgrown, out in stores April 9th. I love nothing more than when two artists I love from different genres team up to make an original track, and that is exactly what is going on in this song. The RZA comes in on this minimalist track and  lays vocals over a beat I would never imagine the RZA to would be a part of. The backing vocals by James Blake matched with the slow, almost spoken lyrics by the RZA allows for a perfect melodic combination that transcends genres. Make sure you check out Overgrown when it drops because this is an album that will definitely deserve many listens. The second single James Blake released today uses a Big Boi sample taken from his song, “Royal Flush”. These two tracks have me waiting anxiously for April 9th.
