James Blake has unveiled the visuals for stunning track ‘My Willing Heart’ which stars Hollywood film actress Natalie Portman. The film, directed by Anna Rose Holmer and shot in LA, focuses on a heavily pregnant Portman and her unborn child and is shot in black and white. The shots switch between those of Portman in a typical maternal setting and one which is almost dreamlike, as the actress swims beneath silvery light.

‘My Willing Heart’ is taken from Blake’s third studio album The Colour in Anything and its accompanying visuals demonstrate just how far the English electronic musician has come since he first made his name as an exceptionally unique songwriter.
