- Jess Glynne Premieres New Song “Thursday”
- London-based singer-songwriter Jess Glynne has dropped a new song “Thursday” from her upcoming sophomore album “Always In Between”.
The song is the third single off following "I'll Be There" and "All I Am". She co-wrote the song with Ed Sheeran and Steve Mac.
The song is written to reduce prejudice against fellow ginger people.
"We talked about that (being redheads). It's weird. I don't understand why there is such a prejudice about it in this country," Jess Glynne said. "I've definitely heard all the ginger jokes. But guys get it a lot harder. I think it affected Ed more. But maybe people like Ed and me, we're changing that. I love my hair. It is what it is, right?"
"In this business, you are being judged all the time," she continued. "I'd be lying if I said I didn't feel insecure, like I wasn't good enough or pretty enough, and it wasn't enough just to have my music. Instagram and Facebook create so much pressure on kids. Nobody is perfect. People wake up and have scruffy hair and spots on their face, and that is all a part of life. I thought it was important for someone with a platform to say that."
The album “Always In Between” comprises of 12-track including the UK number-one single "I'll Be There" and is due out October 12th.
It is available to pre-oder here.
She will embark on a headline tour in support of the album in the UK, Ireland and the US, with beginning at 3Arena in Dublin on November 27th.
