Just say you love me, just for today And don’t give me time ‘cause that’s not the same Want to feel burning flames when you say my name Want to feel passion flow into my bones Like blood through my veins
'Cause I don’t wanna fall in love If you don’t wanna try, But all that I’ve been thinking of Is maybe that you might And, baby, it looks as though we’re running out of words to say And love’s floating away
Won’t you stay? Won’t you stay? Slowly slowly you unfold me, But do you know me at all? Someone told me love controls everything But only if you know
A quick search for Jessie Ware on IHM turns up five long pages of gushing praises and features stretching back all the way to the very day we created this music appreciation site. If any of you were around us then, you’d know how hard we fell for the English singer songwriter, and how zealously we championed her music. So when new Jessie Ware music arises after a long period of absence, trust me, it’s a big deal to us. It’s been three years since her sophomore album Tough Love, but it feels like it’s been far longer. New single Midnight, which surfaced on Friday, finally ends that Jessie Ware drought. Jessie melts us with her ever spectacular voice on the sensual and chic R&B soul song. As always, there’s an unparalleled opulence and resplendence to her music, and an unmatched sophistication and complexity to her delivery. You can also stream Midnight via YouTube, below. The new song can only mean one thing, and I hope we’re truly right about this… a new album in the works?
