British singer Jessie Ware has been steadily rising over the past few months on the back of her exquisite singles ‘100%’ and ‘Wildest Moments’, and her debut LP Devotion will likely make a splash when it hits next week. Ware’s first exposure came courtesy of bass producer SBTRKT’s 2010 single ‘Nervous‘ — which lead to her being signed — and she has teamed up here with producers Julio Bashmore, Kid Harpoon, and Dave Okumu (of The Invisible) to create a stunning collection of electro-soul songs which place her marvelous voice front and centre. Devotion is a sweeping, gorgeous and remarkably consistent album which announces the arrival of a major talent, and I suggest you stream it below immediately.
Devotion is out August 20. Stream it below (via The Guardian)
