After the silky Julio Bashmore-produced ’110%’, Jessie Ware has unveiled another track from her forthcoming Devotion LP.
‘Wildest Moments’ sees Ware breaking away from dance music’s new breed in order to pull some more conventional pop postures. The track is much closer to the sort of widescreen goth-pop that Charli XCX has been peddling: what with the Bonham drum track and guitar feedback, it’s clearly designed for the stadium (or, more realistically, Brixton Academy) rather than the club. It’s probably the least interesting thing she’s released thus far, but it shows that Ware’s got the versatility to skip from high-impact chart fare to heat-gathering leftfield dance. [via Abeano]
Devotion is due on August 20.
