Following the recent release of his critically-acclaimed fourth album Assume Form on Republic Records, Grammy-nominee and Mercury Prize winner James Blake debuts the video for “Mile High (ft. Travis Scott & Metro Boomin).” Directed by Nabil (Travis Scott, Kendrick Lamar, Frank Ocean) in Los Angeles, the visual features Blake and Scott escaping reality at Mile High Cafe. “Mile High” was released to rave reviews, with Zane Lowe featuring it as his World Record on Beats1, exclaiming “James Blake, you’ve done it again,” and MTV declaring the track “a perfect marriage of their distinct sounds: an atmospheric banger with Scott’s signature bass hits, Blake’s innate melancholy mood, and Metro’s hypnotic textures.” Watch the visual for “Mile High” here: https://youtu.be/pkHlze-Pg3g
