James Blake has unveiled a music video for “I’ll Come Too” and you will definitely get a bird’s view.
“I’ll Come Too” has been a pick for many playlists since the release of acclaimed fourth full-length, “Assume Form” last year.
The music video was realised by director Matt Meech, who has notably worked as an editor on the award-winning and much-loved Planet Earth and Blue Planet television series for the BBC.
Commenting on the visual, Meech commented, “It was an honour to be invited onto the ‘I’ll Come Too’ project. James was keen to make a music video that involved animals in some way. Once I heard the beautiful track, I knew I had to be a part of it. I started my career editing music videos, twenty years ago, and music has always been a big part of my storytelling technique.”
The music video was created with footage from Planet Earth II, the music video the storyline between a penguin and an albatross who both take a flight of fancy and whose actions are cross-referenced for affection from the track.
Further comments from Meech about the footage the crew shot included, “I remembered some footage that we didn’t use on Planet Earth II that I thought might be useful. Both birds look quirky, elegant and beautiful, the Albatrosses have an unusual mating dance, which the penguins watch from afar and the mysterious backdrop of the Snares Island, off the coast of Southern New Zealand, is a truly unique landscape.”
