James Blake & Bon Iver's 'I Need a Forest Fire' Gets an Abstract Video: Watch

James Blake follows up the release of his The Colour In Anything album with the project's first video, for new single "I Need a Forest Fire." The visual was directed by United Visual Artists: Matt Clark in collaboration with Chris Davenport.

Featuring fellow seasonly moody singer Bon Iver on harmony, the video includes various abstract art installations (a single rose catching fire, a bird rising towards the sky, metallic butterflies, etc.) that take the wallowing track over the dark edge.

"I Need a Forest Fire" is one of the standout offerings from James Blake's third studio album, which dropped on May 5. It comes after his notable collaboration with Beyoncé on Lemonade.
