After her set at Pitchfork Music Festival in Paris, Jessie Ware took to the streets of the city with little more than her voice and her guitar player to perform a version of her Devotion highlight “Running.” The song’s lovestruck energy works perfectly with the setting – Jessie wandering down the street singing to herself in the dim, wintery light looks like a scene out of a musical. We’ve sung the praises of her voice since we first profiled her, but check this out if you sill don’t believe us – in such a stripped-down setting, her talent can’t be ignored.
