Jessie Ware has released a new single, ‘Freak Me Now’.
A collaboration with Roisin Murphy, it’s a new take on a cut from Jessie’s album Mercury Prize-nominated album ‘That! Feels Good!’.
“It is a huge honour to have the queen of disco, Roisin Murphy on Freak Me Now,” says Jessie. “I messaged her hoping she may think about doing a collab with me and before I knew it, she’d gone straight into the studio and recorded all her vocals for the track and sent them over to us. I have admired her work for so many years & respect her so much. To have her on one of the most fun tracks on That! Feels Good! Is amazing. I cant wait for us to do this together live in the future! I know my fans are gonna go crazy about this, as am I. I still cant quite believe we are on a track together and have done a bonkers video together. She is graceful, she is generous, she is pioneering, she is Roisin Murphy and she is on Freak Me Now!”
Roisin adds: “Jessie is just brilliant, a super talented songwriter and an amazing singer. She’s truly beautiful but she’s also very funny and never take’s herself too seriously. We’ve been talking about working together for a while. When she sent me ‘Freak Me Now’ I just adored it and felt it was perfectly right for me to be on the song. We had mad fun dressing up on the day of the video, it was fashion chaos!! Like a high class jumble sale, behind the scenes. We laughed at our ridiculousness and we were very silly all day! Just love her and loved everything about working with her.“
