James Blake extra date

As he wrapped up his headlining set on Fuji Rock's White Stage last July, even James Blake seemed amazed by how far he'd come. But 2013 is shaping up to be a massive year for the producer-songwriter: by the time he returns to these shores in June, he'll have released his eagerly anticipated sophomore album, Overgrown – a record that looks set to expand on the stark, digital soul peddled on his eponymous 2011 debut (check tantalising lead single 'Retrograde' below). Blake enjoys a particularly close relationship with his fans here, even attempting to do all of his between-song patter in Japanese when he played at Fuji (he didn't manage it, but he made a damn good try). His first night at Studio Coast sold out quickly, leading promoters Smash to add this extra date, tickets for which go on sale on April 13.
