British soul chanteuse and two-time BRIT Award nominee Jessie Ware will release her critically acclaimed UK Top 5 debut album Devotion in the U.S. on April 16th through Cherrytree Records/Interscope. The U.S. version will feature two previously unreleased tracks, the Ware co-penned “Imagine It Was Us” and “Wildest Moments” (remix) featuring A$AP Rocky. The Mercury Prize-nominated Devotion spawned five singles in the UK — all of which are included on the U.S. version — including Ware’s debut U.S. single “Wildest Moments,” which she performed with The Roots on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon in January.

 

 

A showcase for Ware’s soulful, melancholy vocals and effortlessly elegant songwriting skills, Devotion blends the ultra-modern feel of downtempo R&B with British electronic music — a combo Nylon called “saturnine sophisti-pop that has been lauded as the missing link between Sade and Whitney Houston,” while adding that her “heady cocktail of soulful vocals, techno beats, and pop attitude is creating a sensation that’s entirely her own.” The Washington Post notes Ware’s “ability to capture the heat of an adolescent blush with her cool, Sade-inspired alto … her voice glows amid the detailed electronic timbres of right now.” The New York Times praises Devotion as “meditative” and “sensuous,” while Pitchfork dubs it as “a uniquely soulful masterclass.” New York magazine selected Devotion as one of its Top Albums of the year, noting Ware’s “smoky reserve and sophisticated languor.”

 

 

 

To support the U.S. release of Devotion, Ware will return to the States for several headlining shows, including two in New York City and appearances at both weekends at Coachella.
