Jessie Ware + Sampha - Valentine

“If music be the food of love, play on; give me excess of it,” seems to be the most appropriate quote to use around this time, because in case you’ve forgotten Monday is Valentine’s day. Not sure what to do for your loved one this year ? Then why not treat them to something different from chocolates, flowers or a romantic candlelit dinner ? Instead kiss their ears with this piece of delicate spacey adoration by Jessie Ware (not Jessie J) who you may have heard providing guest vocals on Nervous by SBTRKT. This time she's working with cool dude Sampha. It’s called (quite simply) Valentine and we must have played it at least fifteen times over on repeat since we first heard it. Simple electronic ballerina backing and perfect vocals, it’s certainly not full of excess, but is still feeds us with love.

It’s out on Young Turks on heart shaped vinyl (see picture here) and you can purchase it to buy now (here). If like us you're going to see Glasser on her UK tour soon, you can catch Sampha there. But for now enjoy this moment of tranquil perfection. Smoochy.
