Overgrown is the second studio album by English electronic musician James Blake. It was released in 2013 by Blake's Atlas Records, along with A&M Records and Polydor Records.

Promoted as Blake's most expansive piece of work to date, the album features guest appearances from noted electronic music producer Brian Eno and Wu-Tang Clan member RZA.

Following both the critical and commercial success of Blake's self-titled debut album, Blake released both the Enough Thunder and Love What Happened Here EPs. These EPs, noticeably more structured than his previous releases, featured more R&B tinged work as opposed to the experimental electronica found on the EP CMYK.

Overgrown received widespread critical acclaim upon its release.

The lead single, "Retrograde," also won an Ivor Novello Award for "Best Contemporary Song". - Wiki

In a review for AllMusic, Fred Thomas noted that "while it might take listeners a few spins to find the right head space for the album, once they get there, it's an easy place to get lost in." He also stated that "[t]hough the stormy textures and somber reflections are pretty specific to a particular mood, Overgrown finds and fits that mood perfectly."  - AllMusic
