New Music: James Blake – “Digital Lion” ft. Brian Eno (Stream)
After attacking the clubs with the dark bounce of this week’s earlier leak “Voyeur (Dub)“, James Blake teams up with legendary ambient pioneer Brian Eno for “Digital Lion“, the next official release from his promising sophomore album Overgrown. Blake’s textured vocals here lure you deep into an emotive jungle where lush synths grow thick in the fertile bedding Blake and Eno have created. As the song continues, you quickly get a sense of the track’s cooly confident ferocity; the rata-tat-tat of an elastic snare, Blake’s soulful hums, and a stalking bassline give the song its animalistic quality.
