Interview: James Blake Talks ‘Overgrown’
Rising star of the UK electronic scene James Blake is once again preparing to blow many, many minds as he gears up to release album number 2 Overgrown this April. Prior to its release, Blake made a cheeky promo stop off Down Under where he caught up with Music Feeds for a live-streamed interview in the studio.
One of the most buzzworthy artists around, Blake no doubt had a lot to talk about. The first part of the interview tackles much of the creative process. Overgrown brought collaborations with not only Brian Eno on Digital Lion but also the legendary RZA on Take A Fall For Me. Blake explains how the tracks came to life and the process of fusing creative abilities.
The sophomore release saw a lot more pressure placed on the young musicians shoulders after impressing even the harshest judges with his debut. Blake explains how this affected the final product of the album as well as all the valuable lessons he learnt along the way.
