JESSIE ADDS MORE DISHES TO HER SUMMER PARTY FEAST
It’s Friday! Music
CHANNELLING Donna Summer and the spirit of a summer dance party, Jessie Ware (right) teams up with DJ and producer Sam Lewis and heads back to clubland on new single Hot N Heavy. The pulsating track is one of seven new songs (plus a remix) on today’s expanded reissue of Jessie’s BRITnominated album What’s Your Pleasure?. Glaswegian trio Chvrches opt for a darker twist on the latest taster for the forthcoming Screen Violence album. How Not To Drown is a moody gothic rock number, with Cure singer Robert Smith an unmistakable, and potent, presence in the second verse as he duets with Lauren Mayberry. John Mayer is also back, with a sneak peek at next month’s Sob Rock album. The singer and guitarist is joined by Toto’s Lenny Castro and Greg Phillinganes on the mid-tempo Last Train Home. And Billie Eilish continues to tease her forthcoming second album with new single Lost Cause, a lament for a flawed relationship, while Canadian country star Orville Peck adds reverb-heavy guitars, banjo and castanets to a cover of Lady Gaga’s Born This Way. The single is from this month’s 10th anniversary edition of Gaga’s Born This Way album.
