The growing number of Jessie Ware collaborators and co-writers who contributed to the sessions for her forthcoming Tough Love LP is nothing short of impressive (if not staggering), and includes the likes of BenZel (Two Inch Punch + Benny Blanco), Julio Bashmore, Miguel, Ed Sheeran among a host of others. Add to that list Romy Madley-Croft of The xx, who lent her chops to the effervescent, deeply intimate “Share It All,” which will appear on the deluxe edition of the album when it drops later this year.
Electric Youth‘s long-in-the-works debut LP is finally set for release later this fall, and it seems like the band is finally ready to start talking about it with the release of “Runaway,” the first bit of new material we’ve heard since Innerworld was first teased back in November. And like the tracks that have come before it (and as the cover art implies), it’s a pleasant escalation through the clouds, cascading atop itself in a dreamlike nostalgia. Innerworld is out September 30 via Last Gang/Secretly Canadian.
