Listen now: Jessie Ware's new single 'Tough Love'
So good it hurts
The song was co-written and produced by production pair BenZel (Two Inch Punch and Benny Blanco), who also worked with the singer around two years ago on her song 'If You Love Me'.
Talking about the inspiration for the new single, Ware said "I had just finished a run of shows in the States and went to NY to work with BenZel for a couple weeks, mainly as a different focus to touring. I didn't have any expectations or pressures with what would come out of those two weeks, and think 'Tough Love' sums this up. It was me experimenting with my voice and having fun with it. It just felt right and kind of dictated the route of the next album, much like 'Devotion' did on my first album".
