Had a go at a couple more 12" Extended mixes
Finally caught up on the re-release over the last couple of days. After about 2 minutes of Pale Blue Light, I'm thinking this is the song y'all were losing your minds over? To me it sounded like a perfectly produced, inoffensive Alicia Keys'esque Oscar-baity ballad from an inspiring biopic.
And, then... that bridge kicked in and, yeah, I got it. What a knockout.
Much like the tracks on the original album did, all these new songs just continue to grow and grow for me.
I am re-obsessed with "Overtime." #Justice4Overtime indeed.
I love the tracklisting but I do think it would have been nice if Overtime was the first track on the deluxe, at least on the digital edition. It would be a cute "now the album is really running into overtime" kinda vibe.
Playing this album/religion in full almost daily, but the weather's turned here, it's rainy and miserable and I'm in such a Tough Love kinda mood.
Keep On Lying (so lush), Champagne Kisses, Cruel, You & I (Forever) (how was this not a hit for her?), Want Your Feeling (bop!), the incredible title track (and its stunning Cyril Hahn remix)... it's a real vibe front to back, but super hooky and accessible too. Vocally I feel she developed a lot on this record. Props also to the bonus tracks, especially Midnight Caller (obv).
The whole thing deserved a lot more attention than I feel it ultimately got.
All the way from 2018 Overtime still slaps soo hard. What a banger
I understand why they went with Say You Love Me as the focus single (despite my general disdain for that song) but also think that it positioned her a bit weirdly for the mainstream - Devotion was all kinds of wonderful yet it wasn’t really on the radar of the GP - so they must have assumed that she was an Ed Sheeran collaborating balladeer (and not that this particular track was actually an outlier).
Jessie Ware Gay Icon
It did cross the 100,000 sales mark earlier this month, though - let's celebrate that!
Oh my GOD. Gay Twitter remains unrivaled.
She’s a part of this record for charity. She’s on the lead single “Lost in LA” with James Vincent McMorrow.
New (I think?) remix of Please. It sounds straight out of the late 90s / early 00s dd, make of that what you will. I'll just scream at that drop.
David Jackson is bae, can't wait to hear it!
What's Your Pleasure: Neon Nights Edition
That remix is gay as hell. I want it playing at my funeral (aptly, since it killed the cig this morning).
You were not kidding.
He's also 21.
