Sentimental R&B siren Jessie Ware will gloss the cover of her highly anticipated sophomore album staring longingly out a window, love no doubt on her mind. At least that’s what we can gather from the freshly-released artwork for her new album, which will share the title of its first single.
“Tough Love” will be the name of the new long player, which the British singer also revealed today. Check out the cover art below:
“Tough Love” — the album — is executive produced by BenZel, the side project team-up of superstar producers Benny Blanco and Two Inch Punch. The LP also features collaborations from a number of producers who helmed Ware’s 2012 debut “Devotion” — Dave Okumu, Julio Bashmore, and Kid Harpoon. Elsewhere, it features work from Lana Del Rey collaborator Emile Haynie, Arctic Monkeys producer James Ford and recent Billboard cover star Ed Sheeran. Ware also spent time in the studio with Miguel, though there is no word yet on whether those sessions will wind up on Ware’s album or his.

Speaking of love, Ware is getting married in Greece later this summer. Upon returning from her honeymoon, she will commence promotion for the new album, which still has no confirmed release date.
Anticipation for the new album spiked on Twitter today, as Ware has been hovering at or around the top spot on Billboard’s Trending 140 chart since making these recent announcements.
