Unless you’re a truly obsessive Prince fan, it’s likely you’re not familiar with Love, Thy Will Be Done, a 1991 single the Purple One co-wrote and produced for singer Martika. Fresh off introducing herself with the A$AP Rocky-assisted Wildest Moments (Remix), Universal Island Records recording artist Jessie Ware returns to our pages with an updated version of the underappreciated, if not forgotten pop gem. While Ware’s vocals stick close to Martika’s breathy blueprint, an uncredited producer updates the record’s sound for contemporary tastes, turning the reverb on the synths up to 11 and adding some kick to the percussion for good measure. While this cover is just a promo cut, those left craving more are encouraged to check out Jessie’s Devotion - The Gold Edition LP, released to record stores and online retailers earlier this month.
