The first single from JB’s second album ‘Overgrown’ is weightier, bassier and more confident than anything on his debut and shows he CAN do original songs. The line “Ignore everybody else, we’re alone now” could be from one of R Kelly’s slickest songs. Forget blubstep, James Blake has decided to bring sexy back.
