A couple of weeks ago, British techno-chanteuse Jessie Ware released her first new music since her 2012 album Devotion. Produced by superstar beat-maker Benny Blanco (who’s done work for Rihanna and Katy Perry) and London “post-bass” producer Two Inch Punch, “Tough Love” has ethereal, Kate-Bush-esque vocals, a crisp, Prince-ly beat, and enough thick, delicious bass to satisfy the fans who came to her via electronic artists like SBTRKT and Joker. Now it also has a video that seamlessly translates the song’s gossamer vibes into visual form, which mainly means lots of shots of roses and lights and the very pretty Jessie Ware herself.
Ware hasn’t announced a title or a release date for her next album, but she’s revealed that the “Tough Love” producers (who collaborate under the name BenZel) will be executive producing, and teen-beloved cornball Ed Sheeran is also involved somehow. Despite the complete lack of verified information, it’s still sure to be one of the best pop moments of the year (assuming it comes out this year).
