Jessie Ware is back! On Monday (June 16), the British singer-songwriter premiered her new single “Tough Love,” and it’s absolutely beautiful. That should come to no surprise though considering her 2012 debut album, Devotion, was one of the most sophisticated, soulful pop records in recent memory. And judging by the new single, there’s every chance that we are in for another incredible treat with her upcoming sophomore effort due out this Fall. Produced by BenZel (aka Two Inch Punch and Benny Blanco), “Tough Love” is a soft and enchanting piece of modern blue-eyed R&B with the same sense of space and power that we’ve come to expect from Miss Ware. “You have me cryin’ out / Cryin’ out for more / You have me cryin’ out / Cryin’ out for more,” she sings as her atmospheric surroundings continue to build around her smooth vocal – EVERYTHING. As our first taste of the new record, this is a extremely exciting glimpse of what’s to come. I’m already shaking and crying. What do you guys think?
Jessie Ware will release her new single “Tough Love” in the UK on August 4th!
