We're one week shy of the release of Jessie Ware's highly anticipated sophomore set, Tough Love, and loving it will be easy if all of the cuts we've heard thus far are any indication. Here to stoke the flames of anticipation is yet another song from the project, "Pieces."
The song is co-written by Jimmy Napes, Tourist and Ware and fits right into her laid-back aesthetic. "Pieces" is more melancholy than most, with Ware pining over a lover who's shattered not just her heart but her entire being to pieces. That lost love left her broken, but she's already got her mind on letting someone else put her back together and moving forward. Jessie's voice floats like clouds, while strings and a programmed drum beat rain down.
"Pieces" is ready for a prime spot on many a break up playlist. If you're on the wrong side of a love song, then you may want to have some Kleenex handy when you listen.
You can pick up these "Pieces" for free download when you pre-order Tough Love on iTunes right now. UK Bouncers will get to own Tough Love when it's released on October 13th, while those of us in North America will have to wait until October 21st.
