CURRENT: Jessie Ware – “Want Your Feeling”

“Want Your Feeling” is the latest in the long line of teasers of Jessie Ware’s forthcoming Tough Love, following the title track as well as the Ed Sheeran-assisted “Say You Love Me”. “Feeling” continues Ware’s streak of working with outside songwriters and producers, with Dev Hynes of Blood Orange contributing to the recording. James Ford, who produced two stellar 2013 albums, Arctic Monkeys’s AM and Haim’s Days are Gone, produced this cut, and his touches are felt just as much as Hynes. The song punches with an assertiveness that is rarely felt in Jessie Ware songs, striking straight-on where her other tracks would skate around. On one of her first singles, Ware sang, “You keep me running,” yet on these latest offerings, Ware sounds comfortable standing in one place and building upward. Where she’s headed, perhaps no one knows.
