Jessie Ware shared the tracklisting and North American release date for her upcoming album Tough Love.
Ware’s sophomore album will drop on October 21st, and features an all-star production team composed of Benny Blanco (the man behind Katy Perry and Rihanna records), Ed Sheeran and Miguel – just to name a few.
In comparison to her 2012 efforts on Devotion, Ware told Pitchfork.com:
“My vocal is more laid-bare on this one. I’m definitely not belting the whole way through, but I branched out more…”
The British soul singer reportedly recorded the album in two weeks during a break in between touring, which she spent away from her fiance. She said:
“It’s not always easy being away from the person that I love so much, but I’m also doing something that I really, really love,” she says. “It’s realistic that it’s not always real easy.”
