Watch James Blake’s Emotional Performance of “Vincent”

James Blake gifted fans with a wonderful present this holiday season as the British singer released the studio take of his unadorned rendition of Don McLean's "Vincent." After frequently performing the American Pie song about Vincent Van Gogh in concert over the past year, Blake entered Los Angeles' Conway Studios earlier this month to lay down the track. Like those live renditions, Blake's version strips the song to its core as the singer runs through the track accompanied only by piano.
