The just Mercury Prize-nominated Jessie Ware is releasing ‘Night Light’, a track dedicated to her real-life boyfriend, as the fifth single from her debut LP ‘Devotion’. She says he (her boyfriend) “really doesn’t like the song”, but no matter… it’s not like he’s on the Mercury panel or anything.

Jessie also describes ‘Night Light’ as a “sassy ballad”, despite the fact that it features a cello. She did write it, so she knows what she’s talking about. To a greater extent than her unappreciative boyfriend, at least.

‘Night Light’ is out via PMR Records on 22 Oct. No one’s officially said this yet, but the original ‘Devotion’ version may be paired with a remix by Hot Chip’s Joe Godard, who you may remember became Jessie’s ‘mentor’ as part of a previously mentioned Bacardi Beginnings project.
