Miguel f/ Jessie Ware – “Adorn” (Remix) I New Music

500033-miguel_617_409

After the success of 2012’s Kaleidoscope Dream there’s been a barrage of remixes and collaborations on many of the expertly arranged soulful cuts from the album, including a guest spot from Kendrick Lamar. Jessie Ware has now jumped up to the plate and set forth her own version of lead single “Adorn.”

Rather than add her own verse, Ware has chosen to harmonise on Miguel’s own vocals, adding a subtle texture to the track rather than dominating it. It’s an interesting idea and Ware’s smooth delivery sits nicely with Miguel’s voice, but unfortunately her voice never quite comes through enough and at points you really have to strain to hear her presence at all. The track was premiered on BBC radio 2 so apologies for the initial voice over, but take a listen below and see if you agree or disagree.
