Mercury award-nominated electronic wunderkind James Blake will follow up his Splendour in the Grass appearances with four full-length sideshows.

With collaborators including Brian Eno, Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon and Wu-Tang Clan’s RZA, Blake’s reputation as the 'next big thing’ was confirmed with the release of his second LP Overgrown in April.

His 2011 eponymous debut album sold over 400,000 copies and garnered Mercury, Brit and Ivor Novello award nominations and led Alexis Petridis to write in the Guardian that “Blake is exceptionally good at what he does, and what he does is hugely original...”

Combining his heart-piercing songwriter side with soaring electronics, Overgrown takes the listener surfing an emotional wave. It is an electronic soul testament that marks him out as the successor to Massive Attack and Aphex Twin as well as a significant contemporary of singer songwriters like Bon Iver.

Overgrown is an incredible album that sees Blake growing as a singer and songwriter while at the same time returning to the brain-melting electronic perfection of his early releases on Hemlock and Hessle, moving way beyond any post-dubstep pigeonholes to include stunning reinterpretations of both hip-hop and house.
