John Legend‘s stirring new song “Made To Love” has gotten a great, visually stunning video. The Daniel Sannwald-directed clip features shots of flowers dripping paint and naked bodies intertwining behind a watery, warped camera effect as Legend sings in black-and-white. During the track’s lurching refrain, the visuals transform into liquidy black CGI reminiscent of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo‘s opening credits. Flowers, kisses, crooning: with these simple “love song” tropes they made something truly captivating.

The pounding ballad is off Legend’s forthcoming Love In The Future (out September 3).
