Jessie Ware and Romy collaborate on new single 'Lift You Up'

Having just finished her barnstorming set at this year's Glastonbury Festival, Jessie Ware has now returned to share a very special collaboration.

The new track 'Lift You Up' sees her team up with The xx's Romy for the new release, and was debuted during a surprise performance at her recent Glastonbury show.

Speaking about the new offering, Jessie said, “I was so excited to be in the room with my friend and to see how she works and to hear her beautiful voice. I'm so proud of the record. It's a song that's about both of us being too hard on ourselves, and not believing enough in ourselves. I think anyone can relate to that.

“There was a wonderful serendipity about the fact that she worked with Stuart Price on the last record too.

“It's going to be so exciting for people to hear this and people to hear it live at Glastonbury. It seems to be a theme of mine that I now debut songs at Glastonbury and I'm excited for everyone to hear us celebrating each other.”

While Romy added, “I’ve been a fan of Jessie’s music for a long time and it was amazing to finally work together after many years of friendship.

"Sometimes we all need a friend there to lift us up and help us see things differently. A memory comes to mind of Jessie and I backstage at a festival when I was just starting to play my solo music live and I was still figuring things out. She hyped me up and helped me believe in myself when I was feeling unsure. The conversation we had really stayed with me and was definitely in my mind when we were writing the lyrics.

"It was so wonderful working with Stuart Price again after we worked so closely on my album and with the brilliant Clarence Coffee jr for the first time. We wanted this song to be uplifting, celebrate togetherness and I can’t think of a better way to share it with everyone than at Glastonbury.”
