Jessie Ware Stays Out Late on an Island in Her New “Midnight” Video: Watch

“We shot from 1 a.m. until the sun came up”

Jessie Ware has shared the video for her new song “Midnight.” The hazy clip was filmed in Mallorca, one of Spain’s Balearic Islands. It features Ware wandering and driving around at night before ending up at a beach. “We shot from 1 a.m. until the sun came up and the video was so much fun to make,” Ware said in a statement.

Watch the Tom Beard-directed clip below.

“Midnight” is Ware’s first new solo music since 2014’s Tough Love. She recently revealed that her next album is due out later this year—it’s slated to feature Cashmere Cat, Francis and the Lights, Julia Michaels, Ed Sheeran, and more.

    “Midnight”

    When Jessie Ware first appeared on our collective musical radar earlier this decade, she did so as a fully-formed proposition: a down-to-earth London girl with a subtle, steely voice and a gift for bridging the gap between R&B, soul, and the sounds of British dance music. Her music is adult contemporary in the purest and most complimentary sense of the phrase: It’s meant for grownups who can appreciate the balance she strikes between the past and the present.

    Ware’s new single, “Midnight,” inhabits the same complex space she first defined on her albums Devotion and Tough Love. The relationship at its heart isn’t a weekend fling or a casual romance: It’s real, risky love, the kind of love that can curdle into emotional devastation if you’re not careful. She floats over an undulating synth melody before howling alongside a stomping piano riff: “Don’t let me fall through/Now that I need you.” She’s never sounded more desperate, reaching into the upper limits of her range with an explosiveness largely absent from her earlier work. Ware’s performance captures all of the magic and terror that comes with totally yielding your heart to someone else. This is Ware’s gift: She takes those rare moments where the stakes are irreversibly raised, and imbues them with the drama and elegance they deserve.

    Jessie Ware – “Selfish Love” Video

    Earlier this summer, the poised and tasteful UK soul singer Jessie Ware came back with the lush new ballad “Midnight.” Today, she follows it up with “Selfish Love,” a new song with a bit of a bossa nova lilt. Cashmere Cat and Benny Blanco teamed up to produce the track, and it’s a coldly flirty song about an emotionally distant dude. In director Tom Beard’s video, Ware and a male companion spend time in some luxurious places as their relationship falls apart. It has the ravishing look of an old Italian movie, and it builds to an ending that I didn’t see coming. Check it out below.



    There’s a new album from Ware on the way, but we don’t know the details yet.
