Digital Lion is the latest offering from James Blake’s forthcoming album “Overgrown” due out next month. Blake is joined by Brian Eno on this track.

Wings is a great track from Macklemore and Ryan Lewis that’s also been featured by the NBA recently… Better said, a sample/re-edit of Wings is used by the NBA. The song itself is about commercialization. Macklemore recently took to Twitter to shout back at hecklers calling him a sellout for having let the NBA use the song. I completely side with Mack on this. Read his thoughts here .
