James Blake unveils video for 'Overgrown' - watch

The single comes from Blake's second album of the same name

James Blake has unveiled the video for the title track of his new album, 'Overgrown'.

The singer and producer released his second LP on April 8. It is the follow-up to his self-titled full-length debut, which was released in 2011.

The 'Overgrown' video was directed by Nabil Elderkin, who has previously worked with Kanye West, Foals, Frank Ocean and Bon Iver.

James Blake recently said that he doesn't care if people illegally download his new album for free.

The singer says that he accepts digital piracy as an everyday fact of life.

Asked by The Guardian about his opinion on people downloading the new album for free, he said: "Why wouldn't you? I'm starting not to care, to be honest."

He added: "Things are changing. The ship [music industry] isn't just going down. There are people trapped inside, bashing on the windows trying to get out."

James Blake will be playing a number of UK festivals this summer, including Festival No 6 and Bestival.
