Talking about the artists we love

Watch James Blake’s ‘Can’t Believe the Way We Flow’ video because — bird poop brings you luck

British singer James Blake’s ‘Can’t Believe the Way We Flow‘ music video was released yesterday, with the song itself a celebration of just how wonderful it feels when you are in love with someone.

The video, on the other hand, is a bit of a disjointed mess, as it is nothing but supposedly ‘artsy’ shots of fragments of life being lived by many different people, including a number of real-life couples, interspersed with shots of a bird pooping on some of them.

Because, you know, in Russia, a bird pooping on you means you are going to have a lot of luck.

(I didn’t say the video made any sense now, did I?)

The song is also disjointed and seeming to have a problem picking a genre, so not my personal favorite when it comes to James Blake. But it does show artistic development, and he did at least have a reason for writing it.

As Blake himself put it to Apple Music recently, “It’s a pure love song, really. It’s just about the ease of coexisting that I feel with my girlfriend”.

Maybe that’s how he sees love then? Disjointed, kinda messy and all over the place?

Blake’s ‘Can’t Believe the Way We Flow‘ is from his fourth studio album Assume Form, which was released in January.

Along with the official ‘Can’t Believe the Way We Flow‘ music video release, he also announced new concert dates in North America.

They will be taking place in September and October, and will see Blake performing in Pennsylvania, Texas, Colorado and North Carolina.
