James Blake has announced he will play a lone New Zealand show.

The critically acclaimed UK artist is set to perform at the Auckland Town Hall on August 2.

Blake, 24, was nominated for a Mercury Prize for his 2011 self-titled debut album and this year's follow up Overgrown has seen him hailed by Pitchfork as a "modern master of emotional speculation".

His trip to New Zealand is timed to coincide with his performing at Australia's Spendour In The Grass festival in July.

Tickets for the Town Hall show go on sale from The Edge at 9am on May 13.
