James Blake’s ‘Overgrown’ Fall Plans

05:01 PM Monday 5/20/13 | |

Drake’s OVO Fest isn’t the only North American stop on James Blake’s upcoming 2013 itinerary. In addition to the Aug. 4 festival appearance in Toronto, the English electronic producer and singer/songwriter has added two dozen gigs in the U.S. and Canada.

Blake has a new album to support. His second studio album, Overgrown, was released in April.

Covering tunes by Feist and Joni Mitchell has worked out well for Blake. For his second LP, he told the Boston Globe he wanted to focus on his own songwriting.

“It was a matter of figuring out the songs for myself, and not springboard off something like a cover,” he told the Globe in a recent interview. “With the second album I could have done that, and it probably would have made my life a lot easier. Covers are an incredibly powerful force, and I really wanted to take this opportunity to learn how to craft my own songs — not necessarily the conventions of songwriting, but figure out how to do it for myself.”

Blake described his music as a “learning process.”

“I remember once saying it was melodic bass music. I think that might discount that almost all bass music is melodic,” Blake told the newspaper. “As much as it rolls off the tongue, it might be fairly [expletive]. I would say my music is a learning process to me. I think that’s the best way to describe it. I use what’s in front of me and the tools available to me right now. I’m trying to make interesting things with them.”
