Jessie Ware: Tough Love

Jessie Ware, Theo Parrish, Julia Holter, Benoit & Sergio and a tribute to the late Gerry Goffin in the music we tweeted this week

London’s beloved songstress Jessie Ware released her new single, “Tough Love,” and—as expected—it’s one for the repeat button. Produced by duo BenZel (who were also behind her saucy Brownstone cover), the song was recorded in New York after a whirlwind tour, which might have played into the inspiration for the lyrics. Ware never disappoints with her vocals, which are at once restrained and full of emotion, but she explained in a statement, “Tough Love” is more of a demonstration of her experimenting and having fun with her voice. While there’s no official release date yet for her sophomore album, she says the song is a solid indication of what to expect.
