After the announcement of the re-release of the Mercury Prize winning and two-Brits’ nominated debut album ‘Devotion’ comes the selection of four bonus tracks including a feature spot from A$AP Rocky on ‘Wildest Moments’ as well as brand new track ’Imagine It Was Us’.
Produced by album collaborator, Julio Bashmore, ‘Imagine It Was Us’ evokes the best of disco dance floor bangers of the 80s yet retaining the sultry soulfulness of Jessie Ware’s voice.
The brand new video is set inside a somewhat ‘speakeasy’ club where Ware sings in the dressing room amongst dancers warming up, and switches to singing and dancing below spotlights whilst alluring the male dancers’ attention in a red Jessica rabbit dress.
In a ponytail, large gold-hooped earrings and spandex, it’s easy to forget the emotional rollercoaster of ‘Wildest Moments’ and soar into an 80s Flashdance flash back. It is a colourful avant-garde video that compliments the track so well.
Watch it now.
