James Blake released the music video for My Willing Heart, off 2016's The Colour in Anything, Monday. The stark, black-and-white clip stars a pregnant Natalie Portman and was directed by Anna Rose Holmer. According to a press release, the actress appeared in the video just days before her daughter's birth last month.

Though Blake released The Colour in Anything last May, My Willing Heart is the first of the album's tracks to receive a music video. The electro-soul artist discussed the track, which Frank Ocean co-wrote, with EW last year. I worry about the future too much to be able to comment on the moment so well, Blake said when explaining Ocean's contributions to the song's kind of millennial lyrics. I'd say [Ocean] is one of the best lyricists around.

The Colour in Anything was just one dimension of a banner 2016 for Blake where he collaborated with Ocean, Vince Staples, and Beyoncé.
