Be­hind the song with Jess Glynne

ELLE (Canada) - - Radar -

We got this so-hot-right-now Brit (fronts a new Bench cam­paign, scored five num­ber one sin­gles in the U.K. in 2015, has just re­leased a sin­gle that has been viewed on YouTube 15 mil­lion times and count­ing) to give us the in­side scoop on three songs from her brand-new al­bum, I Cry When

I Laugh. “Why Me” “I wrote this with the pro­ducer Knox Brown, who I worked with for most of my al­bum. It came from a place of frus­tra­tion—I’d been treated kind of badly, and I was just hav­ing one of those ‘Grr, why me?’ days.” “Ain’t Got Far to Go” “This was a defin­ing song on the al­bum. It was the first one I wrote that I knew ‘Okay, this is where I’m go­ing sound-wise and every­thing-wise.’ It has been a long time com­ing to where I am now, and it fi­nally felt like I didn’t have far to go.” “No Rights No Wrongs” “This was one of the most fun ses­sions I’ve ever had to cre­ate a song! We [Brown, col­lab­o­ra­tor Ja­nee Ben­nett and oth­ers] were all in a room, just jam­ming out. It’s about life and why things hap­pen. I be­lieve in fate, and this song is about the ques­tions you can’t re­ally an­swer. It makes me feel so good singing it.” n
