AceShowbiz - Last month, James Blake released his collaboration with Travis Scott (II) and Metro Boomin entitled "Mile High". Now fans are treated to the cinematic music video of the collaborative track which was released on Sunday, February 3 as promised. Nabil Elderkin served behind the lens.
Clocking at four minutes and twenty seconds, it opens with James sitting down at a cafe where he runs into Travis, who looks more than pleased to see his friend. They both share a hug before they start catching up with each other. As the British singer listens to what the rapper has to deal with these days, he stirs his cup of coffee.
Things take a psychedelic turn after that, with the two falling into a swirling abyss filled with smoke and stars. Despite that, they don't look confused and proceed to deliver the collaboration. "Lasting like Duracell/ 40 days, 40 nights/ Feel like a holy night," they trade lyrics. "The lesson's always there/ That less is always more/ And in the back and forth/ I'm not keeping score."
Metro Boomin, meanwhile, does not make an appearance in the visuals.
"Mile High" marks the third time James collaborates with Travis. The former previously provided backup vocals on Travis' "the ends" and was featured on his 2018 song "Stop Trying to Be God". On the other hand, this is the first time James and Metro collaborate, though the latter provides production on another song off James' latest album "Assume Form".
Described as a pop album and significantly more upbeat than his previous records, "Assume Form" hit the stores on Friday, January 18. Besides Travis and Metro, the critically-acclaimed effort features collaborations with the likes of Andre 3000 (Andre Benjamin) and Moses Sumney while its lyrics mainly allude to James' relationship with his girlfriend Jameela Jamil.
