Singer/songwriter Jessie Ware has released the new single “Midnight” — today via PMR / Friends Keep Secrets / Interscope Records. The track debuted yesterday, on Annie Mac’s Hottest Record In The World, and it is now available via digital streaming services.
On “Midnight,” which was co-written by Ware and produced by Carrius Gold and Pop Wansel, Ware meditates on the challenges of maintaining a relationship through the most difficult times. “‘Midnight’ is the song I’ve always wanted to be able to sing but perhaps didn’t have the confidence until now.” The track is the first new music to be released from the three-time BRIT Award nominee’s upcoming third album, which finds her collaborating with Felix and Hugo White (The Maccabees), Kid Harpoon, and her long-term collaborator and close friend Benny Blanco. The new album, which will be released later this year, explores themes of family, love, tumultuous relationships, and motherhood. More details will be revealed soon.
It’s been three years since the release of Ware’s second album Tough Love, the follow-up to Ware’s Mercury Prize-nominated debut Devotion, which was released in 2012. She has also been featured on records by SBTRKT, Disclosure, Mayer Hawthorne, and many more.
