Four days after surprise releasing his excellent third LP, The Colour in Anything, James Blake has shared the video for his Bon Iver-assisted track, “I Need A Forest Fire.”

Building upon the song’s dark but beautiful expanse, the video features a variety of shadowy, abstract art. A spotlight swirls around a paper mache-looking face, a single rose goes up in flames, and a flock of birds fly across a blazing sun. Blake appears in faint flashes throughout the clips’s duration.

Watch the video, directed by UVA, below.
