Pharrell returns to seduce the international audience with another mind blowing collaboration, this time with Diplo‚Äôs Major Lazer.
In the wake of her debut album Devotion charting in the UK top five, Jessie Ware is beginning her European tour.¬†Yes, there‚Äôs a touch of Lana Del Ray in the vocals, the introspection, but so too ‚Äúthe missing link‚ÄĚ between Adele, SBTRKT and Sade, according to some.
Truth is, Jessie Ware is developing an image and sound that‚Äôs all her own ‚Äď there‚Äôs some ‚Äúlounge‚ÄĚ in there, and a certain elegance too, reminiscent of Breakfast at Tiffany‚Äôs. And a little like a gin-laced cocktail from that Sixties movie, she‚Äôs sweet but gotta kick. ¬†Take a look at her latest video, Night Light, shot in black and white, a kind of synthesis of pop and French existentialism, Madonna‚Äôs Frozen shot by Jean-Paul Sartre. ¬†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.
Jessie‚Äôs live tour will include Amsterdam‚Äôs legendary Paradiso and Brixton‚Äôs Electric.
