Jessie Ware announces Red Bull Studios performance
On August 20th, the Red Bull Studios will be holding a special live streamed performance by Jessie Ware, she of the soon to be released debut LP Devotion, which will be released on the day of the performance. The thirty minute performance will be held at 7pm, and when the day comes you can view it by clicking here. In addition to the performance and LP release, Red Bull Studios will be doing something incredibly creative on August 18th, as they will be taking over an East London billboard and creating a live art piece, set to the tune of Ware's debut LP.
Fans will be able to make their mark on the large piece of artwork and it'll be worked on all day. To keep you satisfied until the 18th and 20th show up, why don't you listen to 'Sweet Talk'?
