Jessie Ware has dropped a remix of her song "Freak Me Now" featuring Róisín Murphy. The original version of the song, minus Murphy, appears on Ware's latest album That! Feels Good!. Earlier today it was announced that the album is among the nominees for the 2023 Mercury Prize.
Talking about the updated version of the song in a statement, Ware says “It is a huge honour to have the queen of disco, Róisín Murphy on ‘Freak Me Now.’ I messaged her hoping she may be interested in featuring on the song and before I knew it she was in the studio. She is graceful, she is generous, she is pioneering, she is Róisín Murphy and she is on ‘Freak Me Now!’”
Murphy, meanwhile, adds, “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!"
In October Ware will embark on her headline tour of North America and the U.K.. See below for dates.
