Earlier this week Jessie Ware announced she’d be releasing her wonderful 2012 debut album Devotion in the US on April 16, and that the reissue would include two new tracks: “Imagine It Was Us” and a remix of “Wildest Moments” featuring A$AP Rocky. Today (March 22), a radio rip of “Imagine” has hit the web. And it’s so good that we don’t even mind the jarring presence of that dancehall MC barking occasionally during the leak.
This little number is funkier and glossier than much of Ware’s Devotion material, but it’s just as coolly understated. A worthy addition to her eminently smooth oeuvre. Hear it below.
