As if the anticipation for her new album wasn’t already at a feverish pitch, UK soul singer Jessie Ware has premiered the fantastic Shura remix of “Say You Love Me,” the second single from her forthcoming record, Tough Love. The 11-track album, out October 21st in North America, marks the beginning of Jessie Ware – not the backing singer or the club-track vocalist or the girl done good – but the star. “I can’t keep going round going ‘oh my god, this is happening.’ I feel more confident and I think that shows on the record, even the way I deliver the vocals is more upfront. Being a singer is a fucking wicked job, but it’s definitely my job now.”
Jessie Ware released her debut album, Devotion, in 2012. The record debuted at number five on the UK Albums Chart, selling 9,319 copies in its first week. Despite being met with overwhelming praise from music critics, the album didn’t fare well commercially here in the United States, peaking at a disappointing number seventy-nine on the Billboard album charts.
