It’s unquestionable that James Blake had a stellar 2016. Besides releasing his own album The Colour in Anything, he also appeared in a production role on Vince Staples’ Prima Donna and Beyonce’s Lemonade. Even though we’re approaching April of 2017, Blake isn’t slowing down. Today, the singer released the music video for The Colour in Anything standout “My Willing Heart,” and he’s working with yet another big name this time.
The video stars Natalie Portman, fresh off an Oscar nomination for Jackie and the birth of her daughter in late February. “My Willing Heart” was obviously filmed before then, as Portman is still pregnant in the footage as she swims through an endless sea and lounges in a sparsely decorated room, all in black and white. The video was directed by Anna Rose Holmer, who did an excellent job capturing the soft beauty of the song in the visuals. Check it out here:
The Colour in Anything will turn one in May and is available now. Jackie is out now through digital streaming services and in physical formats, and you can read our review of the film here.
