We first heard James Blake’s affecting piano cover of Joni Mitchell’s “A Case of You” almost a year ago. Since then, it’s reappeared in several versions (most recently on his Enough Thunder EP). Now there’s a music video, starring British actress Rebecca Hall, of The Town and Frost/Nixon fame.
The visuals are as simple as the recording. Hall gets ready for her day, poses dramatically, and breaks down weeping, in approximately that order. It fits the directness of the performance and you can check it out below.
