Last month Jessie Ware revealed “Tough Love,” the first taste of her follow-up to 2012’s impressively cohesive and richly soulful Devotion. Now we know that pleasantly unflashy song produced by BenZel (Two Inch Punch and Benny Blanco) is the titular track to that sophomore LP. The British singer and songwriter announced the news, and shared the album artwork, today on Instagram.
As Pitchfork reports, Tough Love should additionally feature contributions from Miguel, Ed Sheeran, Simian Mobile Disco’s James Ford, Julio Bashmore, the Invisible’s Dave Okumu, Kid Harpoon, and Drake’s OVO Sound signee Nineteen85. A release date hasn’t yet been announced, but the new set should be out later this year on Island/Cherrytree Records.
