With the exception of a few late-night performances and music videos, we haven’t heard much from Jessie Ware since the release of her sophomore album, last year’s Tough Love. That changes today with her cover of the Cinderella classic “A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes”.
Due to appear on the forthcoming compilation, We Love Disney, the rendition is like a match made in heaven — the original song’s 1950s old world charm a perfect fit for Ware’s timeless, elegant vocals. “Basically, I got accused of trying to sing too Disney on my first record when I was doing demoes,” the UK pop singer said in a promotional video. “I love Disney songs so, so much, so to be able to sing on this album is a huge honor and a real treat.”
Listen in below.
In addition to Ware, Ariana Grande, Gwen Stefani, Fall Out Boy, and Kacey Musgraves contribute to We Love Disney, which is due out on October 30th via Verve/Walt Disney Records.
