James Blake Performs 'Vincent'

Don McLean's 1971 song 'Vincent' is a bittersweet tribute to Vincent Van Gogh.  McLean was inspired after reading a book about the life of the artist, and the song has just been revisited by one of the most inspiring artists of our time.  This video captures James Blake performing 'Vincent' live in the studio, and gives new life to a beautiful song about a legendary artist.

'Vincent' described in McLean's own words: "In the autumn of 1970 I had a job singing in the school system, playing my guitar in classrooms. I was sitting on the veranda one morning, reading a biography of Van Gogh, and suddenly I knew I had to write a song arguing that he wasn’t crazy. He had an illness and so did his brother Theo. This makes it different, in my mind, to the garden variety of 'crazy’ – because he was rejected by a woman [as was commonly thought]. So I sat down with a print of Starry Night and wrote the lyrics out on a paper bag."
