James Blake Listening Party at Amoeba Hollywood Wed, April 3

James Blake Listening PartyAmoeba Hollywood is having a listening party for the new James Blake album, Overgrown, on Wednesday, April 3 at 6pm! Hear the album in its entirety nearly a week before it comes out, plus we'll have some tasty organic cookies, free buttons, posters and you can enter to win a vinyl test pressing of Overgrown.

The second album from the 24-year old British singer, songwriter and producer, Overgrown, is due out Tuesday, April 9 via Republic. Musically broad and emotionally deep, Blake's growth on Overgrown is similar to the evolution his debut self-titled album evinced from the mercurial Dubstep of his early EPs. It also reflects how much Blake's life has changed in the past two years. His debut sold over 400,000 copies - quite a feat for a record so uncompromisingly introspective and experimental. It also picked up Mercury, BRIT and Ivor Novello nominations, sent him around the world on tour, and brought him into contact with a wide array of fans and collaborators that includes Jay-Z, Kanye West, Bon Iver, Bjork, Drake, Brian Eno, and The RZA.

Pre-order Overgrown on CD or vinyl from Amoeba.com and, as always, you won't pay shipping to US addresses!
