James Blake - Retrograde (live on Later… with Jools Holland)

Good man Jim Blake plays a track from his Mercury-nominated second album.

Manning two keyboards like some kind of young Jean-Michel Jarre, good man James Blake appeared on Later... with Jools Holland last night (October 1st) to play a stripped back take on Retrograde, the lead single from his Mercury-nominated second album 'Overgrown'. Without meaning to descend into fashion rag territory, it's worth noting that Blake sported a t-shirt for 1-800 Dinosaur, the party/record label he runs with pals Dan Foat and Airhead, which could be seen as in breach of the BBC's no advertising rules if you're feeling particularly pedantic.

James Blake recently gave a tea-fuelled interview to Dummy - read that here.
