Watch: James Blake performs stripped-down rendition of ‘Assume Form,’ discusses recent album in new short film for Spotify

The British singer-songwriter teamed up with Spotify for the short

British singer-songwriter James Blake has just teamed up with Spotify to discuss his new album Assume Form and to play a stripped-down rendition of the title track.

“I feel as if the self imposed restrictions on what it was that I could do and where I could be are off,” Blake states in the opening of the clip. “It’s like the floodgates opened and I just wanted to work and do everything.”

Alongside Blake’s voice over, we see the British artist performing the track on a grand piano in the middle of the night, interspersed with scenes of Blake talking, standing in a field, and embracing the sunlight.
