Jessie Ware - That! Feels Good!

There’s something so intensely satisfying about Jessie Ware’s renaissance, and it’s almost certainly because she seems to be enjoying it so much herself. Not often do artists find themselves with the opportunity to be so playful and lavish over a decade into their career, and you get the sense with ‘That! Feels Good!’ that Jessie really is revelling in such freedoms.

Building upon the disco foundations of 2020’s ‘What’s Your Pleasure?’, here her offerings come imbued with more infectious funkiness; the flirtatious whispers of the title track soon making way for the kind of groovy guitars Stevie Wonder would be proud of, while last year’s single ‘Free Yourself’ is a liberating, sparkling dance-floor number that’s hard to resist. What’s better yet, then, is the fact this confidence and swagger flows through the album as a whole, with every twist and turn adding another colour to its extraordinary palette. The sound of an artist hitting their stride and then some, ‘That! Feels Good’ really does live up to its name.
