Video: James Blake – “A Case of You” + ‘Love What Happened Here’ EP

Been a minute since we’ve written about our boy James Blake. Last time was news that he’d released his Enough Thunder EP. Since then, he’s released a video for his Joni Mitchell cover of “A Case of You” off the aformentioned EP and a new 3-track EP called Love What Happened Here, which you can grab at the end of this post.

Accompanied by Blake’s beautiful sing-song, the video starts off warm and cozy, placing you inside the characters’ home as would a good book or film. And even as the story descends into cool and withdrawn, the video maintains a peculiar power of familiarity and intimacy. Very nicely done.
