Song: Running
Artist: Jessie Ware
Album; Devotion

I'm a little late to the game on this one, but friend and reader Luis told me about this amazing new Sade-esque English singer-songwriter Jessie Ware, who has just released her debut album "Devotion" on PMR/Island.

The album is a smooth, sensual affair with an R&B shell, filled with some surprise 80's-ish electric guitar and elements of trip hop.  Moody, sexy, and assured... this is an important debut.

I recommend just listening to the first three tracks of this album and you'll have an idea if you'd like to hear more.  It's wildly evocative and does an amazing job referencing music from the past while remaining very much current.

This is adult R&B pop at it's finest.  I'm rarely a fan of this genre but when it's done this well, it's impossible to resist.

Listen to this!!
