Video Exclusive: Jessie Ware Sings a Stripped Down Version of “Pieces”

+

We’ve heard her make out jams and poppy dance songs, but this exclusive video showcases the raw power of Jessie Ware’s voice. It’s a live performance of her latest song “Pieces” off her excellent sophomore release, Tough Love, and it’s beautifully stripped down version—just her voice and a piano. The performance is part of a web series from Guitar Center, whose host Nic Harcourt asks Ware for the story behind the song to add some nice layers before her stunning rendition of it. Ware’s producer had urged her to release her power vocals for this track, and what’s unleashed is a vulnerable Ware singing her heart out, in a good way.
