Jessie Ware On World Cafe

Jessie Ware.
Jessie Ware.

This year, British singer and songwriter Jessie Ware released her second album, Tough Love. It features a number of high-profile guest songwriters — Miguel, Ed Sheeran, Benny Blanco — but Ware is the record's beating heart. Ware's songs work from a subtle, muted palette — a restrained take on the pounding pop of the '80s — with her voice adding color.

She plays two songs from the new album and a hit from 2012's Devotion. Ware also talks to Cafe host David Dye about her collaborations, how her recent engagement affected the album, and more at the audio link.
