Jessie Ware has enlisted Róisín Murphy for a new version of her That! Feels Good! track “Freak Me Now.” Check it out below. A Theo James–directed video will follow tomorrow. 

Ware said in a press release:

It is a huge honour to have the queen of disco, Róisín Murphy on ‘Freak Me Now.’ I messaged her hoping she may be interested in featuring on the song and before I knew it she was in the studio.  She recorded all her vocals for the track and sent them over to us. I have admired her work for so many years & respect her so much. To have her on one of the most fun tracks on That! Feels Good! Is amazing. I can’t wait for us to do this together live in the future! I know my fans are gonna go crazy about this, as am I. I still can’t quite believe we are on a track together and have done a bonkers video together. She is graceful, she is generous, she is pioneering, she is Róisín Murphy and she is on ‘Freak Me Now!’

Murphy added:

Jessie is just brilliant, a super talented songwriter and an amazing singer. She’s truly beautiful but she’s also very funny and never take’s herself too seriously. We’ve been talking about working together for a while. When she sent me ‘Freak Me Now’ I just adored it and felt it was perfectly right for me to be on the song. We had mad fun dressing up on the day of the video, it was fashion chaos!! Like a high-class jumble sale, behind the scenes. We laughed at our ridiculousness and we were very silly all day! Just love her and loved everything about working with her.

Ware, who will tour North America this fall, released That! Feels Good! in April, and today it earned her a second Mercury Prize nomination. She’s up against Arctic Monkeys and Jockstrap, among others. Murphy is preparing to release the DJ Koze–produced Hit Parade, from which we have heard singles including Best New Tracks “CooCool” and “The Universe.”
