BRIAN ENO AND WU-TANG'S RZA TO APPEAR ON NEW JAMES BLAKE ALBUM 'OVERGROWN'
Brian Eno and RZA of Wu-Tang Clan will both appear on the new album from James Blake, it has been confirmed.
Blake's second album will be released in April and sees Brian Eno appear on the track Digital Lion. The pair reportedly bonded over a shared love of gospel music with Eno playing Peace Be Still by Reverend James Cleveland And The Angelic Choir when the pair first met. "It just happened to be my favourite song too. We obviously had something in common," Blake says in a statement.
Meanwhile, Take A Fall For Me sees Blake team up with RZA who delivers an "anglophile" verse referencing fish and chips as well as drinking stout. Overgrown is the follow-up to Blake's 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.
Overgrown is released on Atlas on April 8.
