U. K born songstress Jess Glynne released a new single today. ‘Don’t Be So Hard On Yourself’ is the latest song of a string of recently posted through social media to promote her upcoming debut album. It’s an uplifting soul-infused dance track about letting go and following your own path and instincts. Having had great success with her collaborations with Clean Bandit on the songs ‘Real Love’ and ‘Rather Be’, I expect that she will continue to garner international attention. She also shares a Grammy (her first one!) with the group, which they were awarded earlier this year. I believe she will conquer the American music scene and market in the same way Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith and Ella Henderson have.
The lyrics of ‘Don’t Be So Hard On Yourself’ are relatable and positive; Glynne has a distinctive rasp in her vocals and has a hefty dose of soul and hints of Rn’B that shine through on this new track. It’s a feel good song, sure to be a great pick me up when we feel down on our luck (it happens to everyone). It’s sure to chase away your blues, inspired by the great Aretha Franklin and Whitney Houston among others; Glynne’s voice is definitely uplifting.
Glynne’s debut album ‘I Cry When I Laugh’ is ready for preorder on iTunes and will be available in early fall in North America.
