Dim the lights and speak in your most sultry voice: I have a thundering migraine. Maybe Jessie Ware's new song "Tough Love" will help. The London soul singer ran away with 2012 on the back of her fantastic Devotion LP, and this year we'll have the follow-up, co-written and produced by BenZel, Benny Blanco and Two Inch Bunch's production team.
The untitled record's first single owes a debt to the first minute of "Little Red Corvette," but makes a remarkable statement with aerated electronics and Ware's vocals, weightless yet utterly commanding like a horizon of thick clouds. Unique to the track is its emotional peaks and how they're quietly guided to the sticking place without any explosions, just spins and spins of confusion.
