Singer James Blunt breaks down video starring his dying Father

British singer-songwriter James Blunt is probably best known for his songs “You’re Beautiful” and “Goodbye My Lover,” but his latest single “Monsters,” a tribute to his ailing dad.

In his new music video, “Monsters” Blunt, in an extreme close-up reminiscent of Sinead O’Connor’s iconic, one-take “Nothing Compares 2 U” clip, stares down the lens, his eyes welling up with tears, as he sings: “I'm not your son, you're not my father/We're just two grown men saying goodbye… So Daddy, won't you just close your eyes?/Don't be afraid, it's my turn/To chase the monsters away.”
