JESS GLYNNE – ALWAYS IN BETWEEN
Brit chick Jess has carved herself a nifty niche in recent years as the big-voiced gal with the big ginger mane who racks up chart-topping anthems like nobody else. The 28-year-old’s current single, I’ll Be There, is her a seventh #1 in her home country and there’s plenty more here to follow. Three years after her debut album, I Cry When I Laugh, she’s back to claim the Queen Of Pop crown again, especially with Katy Perry and Taylor Swift majorly off their game. To make sure Always In Between has extra superstar cachet, Jess has roped in her pal Ed Sheeran to help out on Thursday, while female empowerment anthem All I Am tries, and succeeds, in making sense of modern life’s abundant absurdities. This is an album meant for long car journeys, lazy Sunday barbecues and beach house slumber parties.
