Miguel’s “Adorn” is maybe the greatest popular triumph of restrained, zoned-out soul music in recent memory, and London relative newcomer Jessie Ware has already exhibited a total mastery of restrained, zoned-out soul music. It just makes sense to bring the two together. A new remix of “Adorn” takes Miguel’s original and, through some studio wizardry, turns it into something like a duet with Ware, even though Miguel didn’t re-record his vocals or anything. So maybe it speaks to how good a singer Ware is: She can pull chemistry out of thin air even when she’s singing alongside a vocal that everyone’s already heard, one that’s more than a year old. Ware’s remix of “Adorn” aired on BBC radio earlier today, and you can it below.
