You won't find this new Jessie Ware song on her upcoming album "Tough Love" (the standard edition, at least) but it's certainly worth a listen as her new music starts to trickle out.
Share It All" -- released today -- is a soothing helping of modern bedroom music with a songwriting assist from xx guitarist-vocalist Romy Madley-Croft, who clearly knows a thing or two about this particular sound.
Even the lyrics of the song's chorus sound like they could have been lifted from an xx song: "Could you share it all with me / And I'll share it all with you / Just show me what to do."
It almost goes without saying, but it's another stirring vocal performance from Ware, though "Share It All" will only appear on the deluxe edition of her sophomore album "Tough Love," due later this year.
"Tough Love" is executive produced by BenZel, the side project team-up of superstar producers Benny Blanco and Two Inch Punch. The LP also features collaborations from a number of producers who helmed Ware's 2012 debut "Devotion" -- Dave Okumu, Julio Bashmore, and Kid Harpoon. Elsewhere, it features work from Lana Del Rey collaborator Emile Haynie, Arctic Monkeys producer James Ford and recent Billboard cover star Ed Sheeran. Ware also spent time in the studio with Miguel, though there is no word on whether those sessions will wind up on Ware's album or his.
Thanks to the buzz from the new song, Ware currently sits in the top 5 of Billboard's Twitter Realtime chart, the Trending 140.
Jessie Ware has announced a pair of UK shows for October, which will both take place in churches. Ware's new album 'Tough Love' will also be released in October.
Ware will play at St John at Hackney Church on October 2, followed by Manchester Cathedral on October 3. They are currently Ware's only UK headline shows as part of a nine-date run of concerts this autumn in Europe and North America. Tickets are only available via a ballot at Ware's website, which ends at mid-day on Monday July 28. Ware also plays at Wilderness Festival, which runs from August 7-10.
The shows follow Ware's new single, also called 'Tough Love', which is released on August 3. The video can be seen below. It's Ware's first new music since her Mercury Prize-nominated debut album 'Devotion' from 2012.
As previously revealed, Ware has worked on her new album with Japanese production duo BenZel, Benny Blanco, James Ford, Ed Sheeran, Miguel and Drake producer Nineteen85, as well as 'Devotion' collaborators Dave Okumu, Kid Harpoon and Julio Bashmore.
The time is nigh. Make sure to check your calendars, Tough Love is coming out August 3rd.
