Wildcard (week 16):
Jessie Ware – Begin Again

Jessie Ware is about to release her fifth album. That! Feels Good! (which is also the title of the record, that comes out on 28 April). The long-player was preceded by two singles already, Free Yourself and Pearls. Now, thereโ€™s track #3, and it really brings out the sun. The song, Begin Again, has a bossa nova vibe, inspired by the British singerโ€™s time spent in South America. In places, it reminds me of Stillness In Time by Jamiroquai, which can only be a good thing.

โ€œBegin Again is where this album startedโ€, Ware explained. โ€œOn a miserable afternoon during lockdown, (producer) James Ford zoomed (co-writers) Shungudzo and Danny Parker in Los Angeles. They were just waking up, it was already dark in London. Frustrated yet completely focused, we set about writing in a new โ€“ and unnatural โ€“ way over the internet.โ€

She continues: โ€œDreaming of human touch, escapes to Brazil, beach bodies, holiday romances, all of it! I absolutely adore this song and Iโ€™m so excited for you to hear it, to hear the beautiful production by James and horns by Kokoroko, itโ€™s the song that I knew I wanted to make as soon as I finished (2021 single) Remember Where You Are.โ€

Begin Again by Jessie Ware is the new Carte Blanche Music Wildcard. That means itโ€™ll be featured prominently at the top of the blog for a whole week.
