Last week, we got word that Jessie Ware’s lined up an impressive list of collaborators for her upcoming album, Tough Love. Miguel, Ed Sheeran, one-half of Simian Mobile Disco, and Julio Bashmore have all been tapped to contribute, and today she reveals a joint effort with the latter producer. In fact, “Share It All,” heard below, is the product of an alliance between Ware, Bashmore, and the xx’s Romy Madley-Croft, who pitched in on songwriting duties.
Compared to, say, the flirty house/pop track “110%,” this Jessie/Julio collab is all sultry vibes: Bashmore’s steadily rocking beat cradles dry claps, teensy bleep-bloops, and Ware’s wispy vocals. It looks like Tough Love is shaping up to be full of slow-jams, as both the singles that have surfaced so far have featured languid drums. “Share It All” will be included on the deluxe edition of Ware’s forthcoming LP.
Earlier this week, Ware added a string of U.S. dates to her European tour schedule, which kicks off this September. Check below to peep her upcoming gigs and hear the new track.
