Julio Bashmore‘s last single ‘Duccy‘ might have split the vote, but he’s back again with ‘Peppermint’, and has enlisted the vocal talents of Jessie Ware.

‘Peppermint’ has been chopped from Bashmore’s as-yet-untitled 2014 album, and certainly if the whole record ends up taking on a similar sound we’ll be looking at something of a more mature take on Disclosure’s wide-eyed retro pop house. The track might feature regular-collaborator Ware, but she doesn’t take the lead, Bashmore makes sure that you know you’re listening to a dance track first and foremost, and Ware’s coos are used simply as the icing on the cake.

Expect to hear a lot more of this track in the next few weeks, and we’ll update with more news on the album as soon as it surfaces. Bashmore has also revealed a brief U.K. tour – you can check the dates below.
