Jessie Ware Announces Album, Shares New Song “Pearls”: Listen
Jessie Ware has announced her What’s Your Pleasure? follow-up, That! Feels Good! News of the album, which arrives April 28, comes with her first single of the year, “Pearls,” which you can hear below. Made with songwriters and producers Stuart Price, Sarah Hudson, and Coffee, the song “doesn’t take itself too seriously but demands you to have a dance,” says Ware in a press release. “It’s inspired by divas like Donna Summer, Evelyn Champagne King, Teena Marie, and Chaka Khan.”
The album, Ware adds, “stems from over 10 years of understanding who I am, and who I enjoy being as an artist and the thrill of performance.” It’s being released through PMR/Interscope.
After releasing What’s Your Pleasure? in 2020, Ware put together an expanded edition the following year and, in 2022, returned with a song called “Free Yourself.” In the meantime, she teamed up with Kylie Minogue for “Kiss of Life,” which appeared on Minogue’s Disco: Guest List Edition LP.
