It’s been nearly a year since Jessie Ware released her third album Glasshouse. And today, out of nowhere, the smooth and subtle UK soul singer has come back with a new standalone single called “Overtime,” which she premiered last night on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show.
Produced by Bicep’s Andy Ferguson and Matt McBriar and Simian Mobile Disco’s James Ford, “Overtime” is a sleek house-inflected banger that pivots away from tasteful balladry and back towards the club-ready electronic music that helped her break out in the first place.
“‘Overtime’ is a taste of what’s to come,” Ware says in a statement. “It’s been really fun being back in the studio and I’m so excited to share this track … It feels like I’m going back to my early days; it’s a late-night song to flirt to. Whilst I carry on working on new music, I hope you really enjoy this one.” Listen below.
