All about his new album 'This Is What I Do'
In the wake of her debut album Devotion charting in the UK top five, Jessie Ware is beginning her European tour.Â Yes, thereâ€™s a touch of Lana Del Ray in the vocals, the introspection, but so too â€śthe missing linkâ€ť between Adele, SBTRKT and Sade, according to some.
Truth is, Jessie Ware is developing an image and sound thatâ€™s all her own â€“ thereâ€™s some â€śloungeâ€ť in there, and a certain elegance too, reminiscent of Breakfast at Tiffanyâ€™s. And a little like a gin-laced cocktail from that Sixties movie, sheâ€™s sweet but gotta kick. Â Take a look at her latest video, Night Light, shot in black and white, a kind of synthesis of pop and French existentialism, Madonnaâ€™s Frozen shot by Jean-Paul Sartre. Â With Devotion waiting in the wings for the Mercury Awards, Jessie has released a remix of Night Light by Joe Goddard, who has transformed it into a sure-fire dance hit.
Jessieâ€™s live tour will include Amsterdamâ€™s legendary Paradiso and Brixtonâ€™s Electric.
