With his sophomore album "Overgrown" due out next month, U.K. electronica whiz kid James Blake has unveiled a pair of new tracks to join previously released single "Retrograde" -- one of which features legendary producer Brian Eno.

On Thursday (Mar. 7), Blake's 1-800-Dinosaur imprint posted the audio of "Digital Lion," giving fans another yawning beat and more piercing soul vocals, this time with Eno on harmony and production duty. Earlier on Tuesday, Blake shared the "dub" version of another new song, "Voyeur," on BBC Radio 1.

Both songs will be featured on "Overgrown," the follow-up to Blake's acclaimed 2011 self-titled debut, which has sold 65,000 copies in the U.S. since its release, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The hypnotic "Retrograde" was released last month as the first taste of the sophomore LP, which is due out on Apr. 8 through Republic Records.

Blake has plotted a month-long tour of North America in support of the album, kicking off on Apr. 14 at this year's Coachella festival in Indio, Calif.
