James Blake’s debut album was a big hit at KCRW and he’s back with a brand new track – perhaps his sexiest yet – right in time for Valentine’s Day.

His minimal approach – a basic beat, his haunting delicate, falsetto vocals, and keys   makes for a simply stunning and powerful song

You’ve been hearing “Retrograde” on Morning Becomes Eclectic and I expect the album “Overgrown“, out on April 9, to be a station favorite this year. He’s also on the bill for Coachella.

His 2011 live session is worth revisiting and here’s a highlight.
