‘I’ll Be There’ is the first solo single to come from Jess since her debut album released back in 2015 which saw her dominate the UK pop world. Selling over 2 million copies worldwide, ‘I Cry When I Laugh’ became one of the defining pop records of its era, with a mass of smash hit singles including ‘Hold My Hand’, Take Me Home’ and ‘Don’t Be So Hard On Yourself’. As she sold out arena’s across the country, Jess’s intimate and universal themes in her lyrics connected with people as she demonstrated her peerless ability to tell the truths young women want to hear about their concerns; the loves that build them up and let them down; the aspirations and dreams that might turn sour but you’ll smile through them anyway.
‘I’ll Be There’ is the start of the next chapter. She’s already topped the charts again this year, putting her midas-touch to the Rudimental collaboration ‘These Days’, becoming the first ever British female to earn 6 number one singles. But now she’s turning her attention to her next foray into fame with her second album. The new single is a gospel-flicked, soulfully uplifting track that retains all that makes Jess Glynne so widely loved, but everything is taken up a level and the North-London popstar has never sounded more powerful.
Jess Glynne new album is expected later this year on Atlantic. She will play the following festivals this year.
Jess Glynne has announced an intimate show at London’s Jazz Cafe on Thursday 27th May, live with a 10 piece band. Tickets to the show are available HERE.
