Jessie Ware has been teasing a new era this past week, and today we got some info on the English singer’s fifth album That! Feels Good! is out April 28th.
The song and some tour dates to come, are preceded by the single ‘Pearls’, a song co-written with Stuart Price, Future Nostalgia-writer Coffee Clarence Jr and Sarah Hudson.
“It was a joy to write and it’s going to be a bugger to sing,”said Ware. “I love the mood it puts my kids in, the instruction to dance, the pleasure of that moment when you let go.”
“Pearls is a record that doesn’t take itself too seriously but demands you to have a dance. It’s inspired by divas like Donna Summer, Evelyn Champagne King, Teena Marie and Chaka Lhan and I guess attempts to show – in lightness – all the hats I try to wear (usually at the same time).”
Of the album That! Feels Good! , Ware says:
When I think of the process behind making it, it’s not been the most conventional, lots of it was done behind screens and lockdowns with old writing friends, some with new friends in person. But I’m so so proud of it. I love it, I love how the record makes me feel (good!) and how I imagine performing it to you.
