The Anna Rose Homler-directed clip for the The Colour In Anything track sees a pregnant Portman relaxing in the days before her delivery. She lounges on a comfy looking bed and takes a dip in the clear waters. As she caresses her belly (in which we can see the unborn Amalia kicking about), her expression matches the contemplation of Blake’s lyrics: “When I see my willing heart/ How will I know?/ How will I walk slow?” Check out the video above.

Blake’s upcoming tour schedule includes spots opening for Radiohead as well as appearances at Rock Werchter, Open’er Festival, and Best Kept Secret Festival.
