Jessie Ware has revealed the artwork to her forthcoming new album ‘Tough Love’ – check it out below.
The follow-up to 2012’s ‘Devotion’ will be release later this year, and will feature the LP’s title track, which was unveiled earlier this month and will be released as a single on August 3 – watch the video for it above.
As Pitchfork report, Ware has mostly worked with produces BenZel and Benny Blanco (Rihanna, Katy Perry) and has also enlisted Miguel, Arctic Monkeys producer James Ford, Nineteen85 (who co-produced Drake’s ‘Hold On We’re Going Home’) and Ed Sheeran along with previous collaboraters Dave Okumu, Julio Bashmore and Kid Harpoon.
Speaking about how the ‘Tough Love’ single, which is released on August 3, came about, Ware has said previously: “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 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”.
Jessie Ware’s next live date will come she plays the Wilderness festival in August.
