Jessie Ware has unveiled a brand-new track, ‘Tough Love‘, which is taken from her as-yet unnamed sophomore album.
Out August 3, the new track was written by Jessie and BenZel, who are – depending on who you believe – London production duo Two In Punch, or a couple of Japanese teenagers from Osaka. Interestingly they have previously collaborated with Ware for last year’s ‘If You Love Me‘, and have been confirmed as executive producers for the new album.
Speaking about the new track Ware said: “I had just finished a run of shows in the States and went to NY to work with BenZel for a couple weeks, mainly as a different focus to touring.”
“I didn’t have any expectations or pressures with what would come out of those two weeks, and I think ‘Tough Love’ sums this up. It was me experimenting with my voice and having fun with it. It just felt right and kind of dictated the route of the next album; much like ‘Devotion’ did on my first album.”
