James Blake has shared the visual for his standout Assume Form track “I’ll Come Too.” Tapping BBC’s Natural History Archive for various footage, Planet Earth’s Matt Meech has edited the visual, filled with a plethora of exotic birds, specifically telling the love story between a penguin and an albatross. “It’s a real story: when you fall in love, the practical things go out the window, a little bit. And you just want to go to wherever they are,” Blake previously shared about the track.

In a statement, Matt Meech shared a bit about the video:

It was an honor 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. 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.
