In a recent interview with NME, Ware opened up about the change in direction of her new sound and the album’s nods to the past.
Ware said: “There are definitely nods to a world that I wished I would have been a part of, that ’80s New York disco scene. I wanted that lushness and melodrama that I’d heard in some of those older songs, like ‘State of Independence’ by Vangelis.
“We wanted it to have that slight freshness with the sounds as well, with lush backing vocals and I actually had [acclaimed conductor] Jules Buckley do all the orchestral arrangements and strings. I’ve never ever been able to do that before, and it was just so magic.”
Reviewing Ware’s latest album last month (June 24), NME described it as “An intoxicating cocktail of seductive beats, exhilarating choruses and sleek production” as well as “pure escapism.”
The four-star review added: “Moving away from the wistful melancholy that permeated her last record, here Jessie Ware takes to the dancefloor – and you’ll want to join her.”
