Earlier this month, pop chanteuse Jessie Ware, following up her acclaimed 2013 effort Devotion, released the single "Tough Love." Yesterday she unveiled Tough Love as the album title, too, along with the pensive album art embedded above. The album is reportedly brimming with production-assistance and features from across the pop spectrum, including former FADER cover star Miguel, Ed Sheeran, Drake and R. Kelly collaborator Nineteen85, Dev Hynes, and James Ford of Simian Mobile Disco. The album was primarily produced by BenZel, Devotion's executive production duo featuring Two Inch Punch and pop production phenom Benny Blanco. Jessie Ware's vocals are enough to warrant a listen to her sophomore album (release date TBD), but these collaborations certainly sweeten the deal. Watch her just-released video for the album's title track below.
