It’s only been a hot minute since Jessie Ware headlined our Ace to BEAT mini-festival at Ace Hotel – she was absolutely stunning by the way – and now after two whole years on the down low she’s back with the first single from her soon to be released third studio album (due via PMR/Island Records).
Jessie calls ‘Midnight’ “the song I’ve always wanted to be able to sing but perhaps didn’t have the confidence until now”. It’s co-written with Kiah Victoria, Jordan Thomas and Bastian Langebaek, and is an ultra-luxurious mix of “fantasy” and “complete and utter desire” that’s delivered with Jessie’s trademark intimacy.
Exploring themes of family, love, tumultuous relationships and motherhood, Jessie assembled a hot team of collaborators for her third album including Felix and Hugo White (The Maccabees), Kid Harpoon, Ed Sheeran and long-term collaborator and close friend Benny Blanco.
