Panic! At the disco. (Sorry.)
Jessie Ware, deliverer of one of the finest records of 2020, is providing brand new details about her recently teased deluxe edition of What’s Your Pleasure? – and she’s well aware that the LGBTs are looking for far more included than a few remixes tacked onto the end.
With the recent release of album highlight “Remember Where You Are” as a single, and a spike in sales eight months after the record’s release due to her great performance on The Graham Norton Show, Jessie spoke to Official Charts about what to expect next.
First of all, there’s a “short film” coming for “Remember Where You Are,” which is “so bloody exciting.”
And then, there’s the deluxe, which is going to be a full experience, and “not just include three remixes.”
“I had so many songs that didn’t make the record…but that doesn’t mean they’re not good! I wrote maybe 40 or 50 songs. I know that my next record is not going to be the same as What’s Your Pleasure? so when I listened to them, it felt maddening that I had all these brilliant songs that I couldn’t [originally] put on the record. They fit so well in this What’s Your Pleasure? world so it made sense to keep them for this rather than to make another record,” she explained.
“So there’s some songs that didn’t make the record because I needed to tell the right story with What’s Your Pleasure? and now actually, weirdly, the deluxe has created this new story and the new songs work really well together which is exciting. I think that if my fans liked What’s Your Pleasure?, this will keep them dancing a bit longer.”
As for her fellow sister in stellar 2020 dance floor releases, >Kylie Minogue? If you didn’t listen, Kylie guested on Jessie’s podcast and happily agreed to the idea of working together.
“I’m working with her. It’s happening. Maybe we wouldn’t have thought to work together if we hadn’t had made similar albums? We hit it off over a halibut. Christmas cards and everything!” she gushed.
A reason to keep going in 2021, if I’ve ever heard one.
