Visiting the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge with Fearne Cotton yesterday (ahead of the BRITs 2015 nomination bash, where Ware found herself up for Best British Female) rZN6S6hqCdcthe singer-songwriter managed to do just that to her own ‘You & I (Forever)’ - a song which really doesn’t tick any ‘quick’ boxes to begin with.
