James Blake and Rosalia have unveiled the video for “Barefoot in the Park,” their collaboration that appears on Blake’s fourth studio album, Assume Form.
The haunting music video, directed by Diana Kunst and Mau Morgó, echoes both the hope and uncertainty of the captivating single. The visual, which premiered Thursday (April 4), opens up with an orange butterfly flying over two children who are staring at a burning car crash, where they were the only survivors. The whimsical retro scenes show the little boy and little girl, which represent Blake and Rosalia, as they grow older and ultimately cross pathways on the road.
"Barefoot in the Park" fuses Blake’s soulful electronic and UK bass sounds with Rosalia’s alternative Spanish folk rhythms, giving birth to a hypnotic Spanglish track about two characters whose fates are intertwined.
