James Blake Releases New Single: “Retrograde” (Stream)
After a tour promoting his last record, James Blake sat down with Zane Lowe’s BBC Radio 1 Show to discuss his new album and the release of his single “Retrograde.”
Blake described his experiences on tour, the people that influenced his new record and his rendition of the Joni Mitchell song “A Case of You” with Lowe.
“It was a bit of a turning moment. It was a moment where I kind of just went, look, I’m just gonna sit down and play piano and sing and it worked out for me. It was the kind of risk that paid off” Blake said when discussing the impact of his Mitchell cover.
