Shake it till the pearls fall off
With that missive, Jessie Ware is having a moment on new groove “Pearls.”
Paired with the announcement of new LP That! Feels Good! [out Apr. 28], this disco-oriented bounce encapsulates the British soloist’s individuality in a tight four minutes. Funky synths and dance-floor filling basslines carry the tune along but it’s the invigorating independent streak heard in her vocals that rings so true and sets this one apart.
Talking both the new single and album up, she shares:
[The song] is a record that doesn’t take itself too seriously but demands you to have a dance. It’s inspired by divas like Donna Summer, Evelyn Champagne King, Teena Marie and Chaka khan and I guess attempts to show—in lightness—all the hats I try to wear…[the album] stems from over 10 years of understanding who I am, and who I enjoy being as an artist and the thrill of performance.
And listeners are all the better for it!
