Sorry for the lack of posts lately, but I’ve been in World Cup mode. And believe me, that requires all my attention. (Basically, I try to do nothing at all during the day that isn’t related to soccer. Well, except for my usual book reading.) Anyway, it seems only right that the artist that forces me out of my hiatus is the lovely-voiced Jessie Ware with a sexy new down-tempo single entitled, “Tough Love”. It’s got that Prince-like stutter percussion, circa “Purple Rain” and pretty, romantic lyricism: “In the middle of the night / All I think about is you.” The single is out August 3rd in the U.K. — David D.
