Jessie Ware recently shared details of her third album Glasshouse. It's due for release on October 20, and she's so far put out three songs from the album, "Midnight," "Selfish Love," and "Alone." On the whole, they sound like how sun on your skin feels, with Ware's perfectly controlled vocals changing from a whisper to a belt in the blink of an eye. A vaguely Mediterranean vibe arches over all of the new music. It's cool.

Anyway all of this is to say: that vibe has now been cranked up to a full aesthetic, as Ware has shared "Egoísta," a Spanish language version of the second single "Selfish Love." It's pretty, and languorous, and it sounds like the sort of music that would soundtrack a pivotal romantic moment in a European movie about lovers reforming a connection after ten years or something. Basically: this is making out music. What you do with that is down to you.
