James Blake @ Terminal 5 (5.9.2013)

Overgrown, James Blake's highly anticipated sophomore album, was released on April 8th.  We saw him debut some of the material from the new album last December at the Music Hall of Williamsburg.  All but one of the new songs he played that night are featured on Overgrown ("Every Day I Ran" is now a bonus track).  It is no surprise that James Blake has gained a considerable amount of new fans over the last few years, especially after touring the United States.  The last two times we saw him, he performed at small and intimate venues.  Last week, however, James Blake sold out two shows at Terminal 5.
