Watch James Blake’s new video for ‘Retrograde’
James Blake premiered his stunning new track “Retrograde” on BBC Radio 1 on Friday, and over the weekend he unveiled a gorgeous new video to match. Directed by Martin de Thurah, the video’s muted tones and slow, deliberate movement almost recall an Andrei Tarkovsky film. Some kind of celestial body rushes toward earth as a motorcycle-bound protagonist makes it to a house filled with people just in time for the explosion. What does it all mean? Beats us, but it’s beautiful. Watch below.
