For a regular song, this is incredible. To call it a demo is pretty throwaway, but in any case, here is the demo of a song called '12' that didn't make it onto Jessie Ware's new album.

It's a glistening and sultry nocturnal experience, a jam so slow that it aches in an ever present intimate moment, glassy-toned synths and chorused guitars playing chords that drip with longing to an understated beat of sub-boom kicks and dub-like hi-hats. And that guitar solo… feels so right.

Jessie Ware's voice itself is captivating, a silken veil of sound that lilts and flutters with subtle changes in dynamic, especially the simple refrain: "At midnight we talk…" She brings soulful pop to a new level here, as she always has done, and had this to say in the SoundCloud description of the song:

I made 12 with Robin Hannibal last year at Red Bull Studios London. Loved him since hearing Quadron's Average Fruit and although this track never made it onto 'Tough Love', it was a joy to work with Robin finally. This is a song for my Sam and I hope you like it, play it late and go kiss someone x

The track is very much the figurative sound of kissing at midnight, or later.

This DOESN'T (but COULD'VE) come from Jessie Ware's new album, Tough Love, which we think is "sleek, silky neo-soul at its finest." It's out tomorrow (14th Oct, UK) but the USA can get this on 21st October. Here is where you may purchase it. '12' is also a free download!
