Jessie Ware’s “Midnight” burns bright

With Jessie Ware, there’s a few things you can always depend on. Tasteful, exciting production choices, lovelorn lyrics and Ware’s undeniably powerful vocals. She’s been acing this formula since Devotion landed in 2012, adding a sugary pop confection to her 2014 follow-up Tough Love. The first taste from her newest, as-yet-untitled album, “Midnight” recalls the more subdued moments of her debut, while once again adding new dynamics. What begins as another torch-burner morphs into a buoyant, piano-based jam, showing a side of Ware we rarely get to see. “Midnight” is a welcome return from Jessie Ware, as lovesick as ever, but with a few new tricks up her sleeve.
