James Blake’s Joni Mitchell cover, "A Case of You," gets a beautiful video treatment starring the British actress Rebecca Hall (Vicky Cristina Barcelona). She hangs out, dances and looks sad in her apartment, where the lights don't stay on reliably. I guess James Blake is the romantic cameraman, which makes this sort of like a restrained, shut-in version of the video for Rihanna's "We Found Love," which is more or less where I locate Blake in the world pop spectrum. "A Case of You" is out now on the Enough Thunder EP.
