Jessie Ware – Adore You
In a blog post that feels like a lifetime ago (50 days is a long time to a Penguin) I outlined my favourite 5 albums of 2018. In that list was the sublime Honey by Robyn, which was co-produced by Metronomy’s Joseph Mount.
Mount has continued his producing ways, this time in support of Jessie Ware. And it doesn’t sound a million miles away from the high-standards that Honey set.
Full of cold electronic shudders that – shouldn’t but somehow do – aid the sensual and devoted lyrics, Adore You is a pretty impressive coming together of Ware’s excellent vocals and production that really develops throughout the track. In addition to Ware and Mount, Simian Mobile Disco’s James Ford is responsible for the mixing.
