James Blake has released a new music video for his song “Barefoot in the Park” featuring superstar Rosalía. The video begins with what looks like younger versions of Blake and Rosalia involved in a car accident. Now as adults, both walk across the same street that accident took place on and as each singer sings their verse, they watch their life before their eyes. Check out the new visual below.
“Barefoot in the Park” is featured on Blake’s critically acclaimed album Assume Form, released earlier this year. The album also features collaborations with Travis Scott, Andre 3000, Moses Sumney and Metro Boomin. He recently wrapped up the North American leg of his tour in support of the album. He is set to head back to Europe this spring, playing both headling and some festival sets including Primavera Sound, Way Out West, All Points East, Fuji Rock, and Jay-Z’s Made in America Festival in Philadelphia alongside Travis Scott, Cardi B, Jorja Smith, Kodak Black, and Anderson .Paak and The Free Nationals.
Blake has also announced that he will be releasing Assume Form on vinyl, set to be released May 10 and include an unreleased track called “Mulholland.” Fans can pre-order it here.
Blake has previously worked alongside Frank Ocean, Beyoncé, Kendrick Lamar, Jay Z, Mount Kimbie, and Anderson .Paak. He recently performed at the 61st Grammy Awards with Travis Scott, performing “Stop Trying to Be God” off of Scott’s Grammy-nominated album Astroworld. Blake took home a Grammy award that night for “Best Rap Performance” for “King’s Dead,” featuring Kendrick Lamar, Jay Rock, and Future.
