James Blake has announced two hastily organised shows in Sydney and Melbourne later this month in support of his forthcoming album Overgrown.
Blake will play the Corner Hotel in Melbourne on 19th March, before heading to Sydney three days later to play Verbrugghen Hall at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music on 22nd March.
In a rare and intimate setting, the shows will be his first on our shores since the 2011 Splendour in the Grass, where he was riding a gigantic wave of hype behind his self-titled debut.
The shows will be the first chance for fans to hear tracks from Overgrown – due out on 5th April. After collaborating with the likes of Brian Eno and RZA on the record, Overgrown is being billed as an album that casts light on a further evolved Blake, one with fewer boundaries, a richness of depth and newfound intensity.
