Jessie Ware’s Glasshouse was undoubtedly one of this year’s finest projects; from further continuing the intimacy of predecessor Tough Love to reminding us all of Ware’s incredible vocal range, the whole album was simply one of 2017’s greats.
However, behind the scenes, Ware has also been working on a side excursion, delving into her love of cooking alongside her mum on her regular Table Manners podcast. So far enlisting guests all the way from Sam Smith and Annie Mac to Will Young and Loyle Carner, it’s this week’s episode which particularly hits the spot.
Featuring Radio 1’s Clara Amfo, a quick opener hears Jessie reveal some stupidly-excellent Prince facts. From the Purple One getting in contact to remix Devotion breakthrough Wildest Moments (under the guise of Joshua World), to personally inviting Ware to support him on tour some years later (which she had to decline due to clashes with wedding plans).
The whole episode is a massive eye-opener; and coupled with Jessie’s endearing personality, the entire Table Manners series is one you won’t want to sleep on.
