JESSIE WARE’S NEW ALBUM, GLASSHOUSE, DUE OCTOBER 20 IS NOW AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER
NEW SONG, “ALONE,” AVAILABLE FOR INSTANT DOWNLOAD TO THOSE WHO PRE-ORDER, ALONG WITH “SELFISH LOVE” AND “MIDNIGHT”
Glasshouse, the eagerly awaited new album from three-time BRIT Award nominee Jessie Ware is now available for pre-order from all participating retailers. Those who pre-order the album will receive instant downloads of the previously released “Midnight” and “Selfish Love” as well as the new track, “Alone,” which Ware co-wrote with Kid Harpoon (HAIM, Florence + the Machine). Listen to “Alone” HERE. The album features 12 tracks, with an additional 5 on the deluxe version.
Of “Alone,” the London-born singer / songwriter says: “I’m so happy to be reunited with Kid Harpoon on this one. It’s a song about stealing time with your loved one, and longing for the simple declaration that they want the same.”
“Alone” is the third track to be released from Glasshouse, which is due from PMR Records / Friends Keep Secrets / Interscope Records on October 20th. The new album marks a thematic departure from Ware’s second album, 2014’s Tough Love. A tender, candid exploration of family life, Glasshouse was largely shaped by the 2016 birth of Ware’s first child, and by the sometimes painful soul-searching that marked that transformative moment. “It became an album for my husband and my baby,” she says. “It’s an apology, a confession, a love note, a declaration. It shows all my fears and all of my emotion.”
With its sonic palette encompassing everything from jazz improvisations to hypnotic house beats, Glasshouse expands on the genre-blurring sophistication that Ware has embodied since the 2012 release of her Mercury Prize-nominated debut Devotion, which was one of the most critically lauded albums of that year. Recorded with her longtime friend Benny Blanco (Halsey, Icona Pop, Charli XCX), Glasshouse also finds her pairing up with Felix and Hugo White (The Maccabees), Ed Sheeran, and Norwegian DJ/ producer Cashmere Cat. Ware has sculpted a dynamic new sound while still mining her classic sensibilities.
In an advance preview of Glasshouse, Entertainment Weekly calls it Ware’s “most powerful and vulnerable LP yet,” while the New York Times called her “one of pop’s subtlest powerhouses” in its Pop and Jazz Fall preview. Of “Midnight,” Pitchfork writes that “Ware’s performance captures all the magic and terror that comes with totally yielding your heart to someone else. This is Ware’s gift: She takes those rare moments where the stakes are irreversibly raised, and imbues them with the drama and elegance they deserve.”
