James Blake just released the official music video for “I Need a Forest Fire,” which seems to be the fan favorite from his new album The Colour in Anything.
The song features Justin Vernon, the lead singer of Bon Iver, and combines his warm vocals with Blake’s to create a tranquil track. Blake and Vernon repeat their need for a “Forest fire,” while the video shows a variety of unique modern visuals using digital effects and lighting.
Both the song and video lure fans in by simultaneously being emotional and mesmerizing. A single red rose is left to burn at the end of the video before a kaleidoscope of butterflies dominates the screen, leaving us to think that their need has finally been satisfied.
