Jessie Ware is currently working her way through the States behind the recently reissued Devotion, a SPIN Essential. While that set is indeed chock full of "silken, saturnine, Sade-indebted" songs, she's reportedly been at work on a 2014 followup, and performed a brand new track dubbed "True Believers" during an encore at a stop in Dallas late last week (via Listen Before You Buy). Seen and heard above, the unreleased gem is a slowly crawling ballad that implores, "Let's get lost forever." Humming keys and warm guitar figures are complemented by a minimal drum beat, and though the song grows as it goes, Ware's voice is always the star. The London singer was among our favorite moments of San Francisco's Outside Lands festival this year, and she recently popped up on a fresh Julio Bashmore track called "Peppermint."
