04 APRIL 2019 (TORONTO, ON) - James Blake has today shared the video for ‘Barefoot In The Park’ (feat. ROSALÍA) taken from his critically-acclaimed album, ‘Assume Form’ which was released earlier this year.
Featuring the Catalan pop sensation ROSALÍA, ‘Barefoot In The Park’ is a breathtakingly romantic moment on ‘Assume Form’ that celebrates togetherness and intimacy. Having reached number 6 in the UK, ‘Assume Form’ has quickly become James’ highest-charting and most critically-acclaimed album to date (also surpassing over 40 million streams in just a week).
The ‘Barefoot In The Park’ video sees James work with Diana Kunst & Mau Morgó, who have both previously collaborated with ROSALÍA as well as working with the likes of A$AP Rocky, FKA Twigs, Spoon, Cut Copy, Little Dragon and Aphex Twin. The narrative follows images of a young James and a young ROSALÍA as they walk through life and grow into adults.
His headline UK dates are imminent and include two sold out shows at London’s Eventim Apollo, with an extensive run of global dates to follow – as confirmed below.
Alongside the unveiling of the ‘Barefoot In The Park’ video, James will be releasing ‘Assume Form’ on vinyl May 10th featuring an additional track “Mullholland”.
