James Blake returns today with a new music video for the Assume Form track “Can’t Believe the Way We Flow”. He’s also announced a new batch of US tour dates.
Helmed by director Frank Lebon (ASAP Rocky, FKA twigs), this latest visual borrows directly from the song’s sentimental theme by spotlighting 30 different real-life couples. “It’s a pure love song, really. It’s just about the ease of coexisting that I feel with my girlfriend,” Blake previously told Apple Music of the track.

“It’s fairly simple in its message and in its delivery, hopefully,” added the British crooner. “Romance is a very commercialised subject, but sometimes it can just be a peaceful moment of ease and something even mundane—just the flow between days and somebody making it feel like the days are just going by, and that’s a great thing.”
As for Blake’s new stateside shows, they’re marked down for September and October. Along with festivals like Philadelphia’s Made in America and Austin City Limits, he’s scheduled to visit cities such as Houston, Dallas, and Denver.
