Jessie Ware will release a new album called That! Feels! Good! on April 28 through EMI. The excitement of the title shines through in lead single “Pearls”, with Ware saying:
“Pearls is a record that doesn’t take itself too seriously but demands you to have a dance. It’s inspired by divas like Donna Summer, Evelyn Champagne King, Teena Marie and Chaka khan and I guess attempts to show – in lightness – all the hats I try to wear (usually at the same time). It’s the second song you will hear from my collaboration with Stuart Price and Coffee – with the wonderful addition of Sarah Hudson – and hopefully gives you a taste of the fun we have working together.”
Ware entered her disco dive era to much plaudits and success with 2020’s What’s Your Pleasure? and she goes gung-ho down that path with “Pearls”. A romping and stomping 70s era disco banger that is ready to be rolled out across danefloors and festivals throughout 2023. Soon swathes will be unable to resist the song’s demand to “shake it ’til the pearls fall off!”
