James Blake Performs "Retrograde" Live On 'Later...With Jools Holland'

James Blake delivers an emotionally weighty performance of "Retrograde" - the standout electro ballad from his recent Overgrown LP - live on BBC Two's Later...With Jools Holland. The track moves from delicate lullaby to buzzing dirge as Blake's stunning delivery punctuates the full-bodied composition featuring the synth work of Rob McAndrews. The performance follows the emergence of the "Life Round Here" (Remix) - his recent collaboration with Chi-Town MC Chance The Rapper.
