Finally Jessie Ware returns with a new album. What's Your Pleasure? is a two-year labour of love with the dream team, including collaborators such as Shungudzo Kuyimba, Kindness, Clarence Coffee Jr., Metronomy and former Badbadnotgood sound whiz Matthew Tavares.
Her fourth studio album is a collection of sophisticated, hard-bodied pop funk that capitalizes on a love of 70s, 80s and 90s club culture coupled with Jessie’s vocals and the intuitive production of long-time friend James Ford culminates in a sound that feels instantly compelling. Jessie has succeeded in audaciously mulching several decades of party music into an album so relentless it doubles as a playlist. With four BRIT-nominations plus a Mercury Prize nomination and three top-ten albums under her belt, Jessie has proven her status as one of the UK’s most influential artists. Her return with the dancefloor ready What’s Your Pleasure? feels like an artist in control while capturing the essence of nostalgia to keep the spirit of club music and the dancefloor alive.
