Jessie Ware – Love, Thy Will Be Done

The modern soul star covers a classic.

Words by: Aimee Cliff

Jessie Ware continues her recent streak of nostalgia with this hushed cover of Martika’s 1991 single Love, Thy Will Be Done. Co-written and produced by Prince, the track is a smouldering gem of unrestrained longing, delivered here in Jessie’s classically restrained and elegant style. It’s at once tightened up with those sharp drums and softened with the warm sigh of Jessie’s vocal, but ultimately it’s a very faithful cover – more like a modern re-visiting – of a great, under-appreciated pop song.
