Coming off a successful release of his fourth studio album, Assume Form, sonically-forward James Blake has returned with a hallucinating new visual for his Travis Scott and Metro Boomin-featuring single, “Mile High.”
The bass-heavy track fuses all the right characteristics on the three-artist track, with eerily-infused effects and melancholic vocals coming from Blake, a gently sung rap verse by Travis Scott, and Metro Boomin’s heavy-hitting bass line undercutting slightly-tweaked snare work.
The new Nabil-directed visual adroitly resonates with the track, undercutting dystopic visuals with swirling imagery. After meeting up in the “Mile High” café, Blake and Scott swirl through a gloomy black void, crooning their vocals all the while — all a daydream contained in Blake’s head.
In other recent music videos, Arin Ray ditched his day job in the clip for “Reckless.”
