Jessie Ware is without a doubt one of the brightest figures of her generation in modern British music, and 2023 has been her year of comeback. This year, she finally found her sound, which includes a lot of dance rhythms and disco music traditions. Jessie Ware's success is also confirmed by Rolling Stone magazine, which recently awarded her a prestigious prize. The concert will be truly unforgettable, and knowing how popular this British music star is in the Baltics, organizers invite you not to wait until the last minute to purchase tickets.
"That! Feels Good!", released in April 2023, is Jessie Ware's fifth studio album and continues the momentum of her fourth studio album "What's Your Pleasure" from 2020. Reaching third place in the UK album charts, "What's Your Pleasure" has been Ware's most successful record to date, increasing her total album sales to 2.2 million worldwide and achieving 2.4 billion global streams.
"The Guardian" awarded the new album a maximum of 5 stars and wrote: "This is pop music made by people who really know what they're doing." And "The Guardian" was correct - among the creators of Jessie Ware's new album is super producer Stuart Price (Madonna, Dua Lipa, Kylie Minogue, among others), who was involved in creating the album's lead single "Free Yourself."
"Pitchfork" has joined the wave of praise: ”Jessie Ware has achieved a feat: a genre-reviving album that is scrupulously faithful to its source material without sounding like a boring rehash."
Jessie Ware's new music sounds like what happens when someone lays down, drifts in, and makes everyone else who listens to it do the same. It's a blissfully liberating record, grounded in Jessie Ware's sensational vocals, boundless energy, and a palpable sense of goodwill and joy.
"Freedom is a sound, and joy is a right" - this is how Jessie Ware's thoughts resonate in the album’s title track.
The success of Jessie Ware's previous album "What's Your Pleasure" and subsequent concerts have influenced the new album directly. Seeing the audience's reaction to songs like "Ohh La La" and "Spotlight" at the Primavera and Glastonbury festivals in 2022, as well as the sold-out concerts at Brixton Academy, Jessie Ware had to rethink her sound, performance, and the songs she wanted to write. The experience of opening for Harry Styles at the United Center in Chicago in October only confirmed these ambitions: "I looked at this huge stage and made a decision. I was here to open for someone who is an outstanding performer. I had to fill not only the stage but the entire arena. I could no longer sing my songs quietly, apologizing. It was time to put on a show. I realized I'm not just a singer anymore - I'm an artist."
In the end, Jessie Ware's fifth album is a small triumph. This remarkably accomplished work manages to reach musical peaks without ever sounding forced or strained. Jessie Ware has overcome all obstacles, fears, and expectations she had placed on herself. Jessie Ware is someone who not only knows what she's doing but does it incomparably, thanks to her experience, confidence, and vocals - the vocal excellence heard here cannot and should not be overstated. She had a vision and the determination to make it a reality.
"I feel good, and I wish the same for everyone else.”
