Watch the new James Blake “Retrograde” video

What is it? An alien attack? A comet? Or some other otherworldly thing that causes time to get all wacky and a small brush fire in the new James Blake video for “Retrograde”? Whatever it is that’s going on, the video’s director Martin De Thurah made it look freaking fantastic. You can watch the new James Blake “Retrograde” video below and figure it out for yourself.

James Blake announced a new album and a new single, “Retrograde,” on BBC Radio 1 DJ Zane on Thursday, and as promised released his new video for the song.

The album, which appeared on our most anticipated albums list, will be called “Overgrown” and is out on April 8 via Republic. In support of his new album, Blake will play at the Ogden Thatre in Denver on April 28.
