Jessie Ware talks second album
Jessie Ware has said she can feel her fan base building.
The singer, 30, has penned and recorded her second album, Tough Love.
She said: "It's really quite exciting. I think the record is there for people to discover and it still hasn't reached everyone.
"I have people that I never expect to like my music come up to me and say they like it. Maybe they only know one song, but either way, it's building all the time, and I can feel it."
Her debut Devotion, released just after the London 2012 Olympics, was nominated for the following year's Mercury Prize.
"I felt so much more confident this time, and I didn't overthink it," she said. "Some of the best songs on the album came from when I didn't even know I was writing an album."
Her second album also includes a collaboration with Ed Sheeran - they wrote Say You Love Me together - which happened while in New York.
"We have mutual friends, but we'd never hung out," she said.
"Then we started writing. I didn't expect anything, really, you never can when writing with someone new because it just might not happen, and we only had a really short amount of time, but it worked a dream."
