UK crooner James Blake shared today the dreamlike music video for The Colour in Anything standout "My Willing Heart," starring Natalie Portman. The Oscar winning actress is heavily pregnant with her second child Amalia in the clip, who was born in February, and its imagery evokes the monumental beauty of motherhood.

The clip features alternately intimate and surreal shots of Portman underwater and in a bedroom; it was directed by the American filmmaker Anna Rose Holmer, who made a splash with her debut feature film The Fits last year. Portman's first child, a five-year-old named Aleph, also makes a brief appearance in the video.

Blake worked on two of the biggest albums of 2016, Beyoncé's Lemonade and Frank Ocean's Endless. Ocean later included Blake's "I Never Learnt To Share" on his list of all-time favorite songs, which also featured a host of other electronic music innovators.

Blake released The Colour in Anything last May; "My Willing Heart" was co-written by Blake and Ocean.
