James Blake has announced details of his new album.

The singer and producer will release his second LP 'Overgrown' on April 8. It is the follow-up to his self-titled full-length debut, which was released in February 2011 and two subsequent EPs 'Enough Thunder' and 'Love What Happened Here' later in the same year.

Blake has also announced details of a brand new track, 'Retrograde', which will be available from Monday (February 11) and premieres on Zane Lowe's show on BBC Radio 1 tonight (February 7).

Speaking previously about the album, Blake said: "A lot of the vocal music I've been doing recently has been quite clubby… But that's mainly because I've had more time to go to clubs, and that normally breeds that kind of influence. I've been doing quite a few DJ set recently, which have been really fun."

He added: "I think it's going to be a bit more aggressive, to be honest. It seems that way."

James Blake will headline London's ICA on Febryary 26. Tickets go on sale at 10am on Friday (February 8). To check the availability of James Blake tickets and get all the latest listings, go to NME.COM/TICKETS now, or call 0871 230 1094.
