The first track, we imagine, from the follow up to James Blake's debut, is called 'Retrograde' and it will premiere on Zane Lowe's Radio 1 show this evening. For those who'll be out and about, or can't wait, it looks as if the track below - headed "James Blake, 17. Retrograde" on his official Tumblr - is a live bootleg. It's an R&B-tinged ballad propelled by handclaps, soaring vocals loops and Blake's trademark blanket synths. What do you think?
