Jessie Ware has announced a new record, What’s Your Pleasure?, which comes out June 5 (via PMR/Friends Keep Secrets/Interscope). Contributors to the album include Kindness, Metronomy’s Joseph Mount, James Ford, Midland, and more.
Along with the announcement, Ware has shared a song aclled “Spotlight” and its music video. Directed by Jovan Todorovic, the visual is set in Belgrade aboard the Blue Train, the private transport of former Yugoslavian leader Tito. Find it below.
What’s Your Pleasure? is Ware’s fourth album and the follow-up to 2017’s Glasshouse. In a statement, Ware said, “It feels so amazing to be back making music, so much has happened recently. Some crazy
exciting things but I feel so happy to be back to my first love.” Find her full statement below.
It feels so amazing to be back making music, so much has happened
recently. Some crazy exciting things but I feel so happy to be back to
my first love. Music was the first scene that truly embraced me!!
I feel like these last few years I’ve had to do some exploration to
figure out what I wanted to write about musically again and learn new
things about myself. I’ve been yearning for that escapism, groove and
maybe it’s time to say goodbye to the melancholy Jessie.
I’ve spent the last year in the studio with an old friend of mine
James Ford, working with a handful of great friends to create a record
I’m truly proud of. I’m happy to share with you my brand new single
“Spotlight” taken from my fourth album. It’s melodramatic; it’s
romantic; it’s everything that I love and it’s got a bit of a beat.
This is the first taste of my brand new album What’s Your Pleasure?
which will be out June 5.
I can’t wait to get back on the road and see you all…. It’s been far
too long but for now let’s have some fun and hope you enjoy the music!
