Ware releases her third album ‘Glasshouse’ on Friday (October 20). It’s the follow-up to 2014’s ‘Tough Love’ and 2012 debut ‘Devotion’, the latter of which was nominated for the Mercury Music Prize.
‘Sam’ – named after husband Sam Burrows – was co-written with Ed Sheeran and features Chance The Rapper’s trumpet player Nico Segal, Francis from Francis and the Lights and The Who bassist Pino Palladino.
Speaking to The Fader recently, Ware said that her new record is “quite personal”. “I thought I was just writing songs, but it’s become this record that’s for my husband and my baby,” she said. “It’s been a wild couple of years, and I feel like this album represents those ups and downs, the fear, the beauty, and the celebrations.”
Last month, Jessie Ware shared the video for ‘Glasshouse’ single, ‘Midnight’. The video, which was directed by Tom Beard, was filmed in Mallorca and features Ware driving through the night before she ends up at a beach.
In a press release, Ware explained: “We shot from 1am until the sun came up and the video was so much fun to make.”
