James Blake is pleased to release the video that accompanies his beautiful rendition of Joni Mitchell‘s ‘A Case of You’. Shot in London last week, it was directed by film-maker Seb Edwards and features his first choice actress for the role, Rebecca Hall (The Prestige / Vicky, Cristina Barcelona / Frost/Nixon). It turns out she’s both a fan of Joni Mitchell and particularly James’s version, so she jumped at the chance to be involved.

The concept of Sankofa is derived from King Adinkera of the Akan people of West Afrika.”Sankofa” teaches us that we must go back to our roots in order to move forward. Whatever we have lost, forgotten, forgone or been stripped of, can be reclaimed, revived, preserved and perpetuated. Thus, Sankofa Music Series will examine our modern roots and the early influences of rock music in the hope that we can carry them forward in the creation of something new. Today’s subject is Joni Mitchell.
