The great British soul singer Jessie Ware returned a couple of weeks ago with “Tough Love,” her elegantly devastating new single. That track’s video has arrived, and it plays like a European experimental film from the early ’70s. The clip is full of ravishing golden-hour images of the back of Ware’s head, film that changes from color to black-and-white, and close-up images of plant life and underwater faces. It’s not an attention-grabbing video, or even a particularly notable one, but it’s all arranged around the song, which still kills. Check it out below.
Ware’s as-yet-untitled sophomore album is coming soon; we await the details breathlessly.
