The serial hit maker makes a welcome return to dance music with the help of DJ Jax Jones.
Jess Glynne needed another party hit. After her sophomore album Always In Between struggled to build upon the success of her debut, another winning collaboration similar to those produced by Route 94 and Clean Bandit is likely to cement the Rather Be singer’s place in the modern pop scene.
Enter Jax Jones. Riding high off the success of his first release under EUROPA (his new project with Martin Solveig), the DJ and producer adds plucky synth, hearty piano chords and a tropical rhythm – the perfect instrumental backdrop for Glynne’s soul.
An upbeat song about a positive partner in a relationship, verses appear unconventional, with no continuous rhythm or rhyme structure. The pacing and flow is fast leading up to a moment of reflection in the slow chorus, where vocal layering and harmonies create a vibrant choral and anthemic feel.
When Always In Between swapped I Cry When I Laugh‘s punchy piano melodies for more guitar-heavy tracks, One Touch is a refreshing nod to the euphoric keyboard pop at the heart of Jess Glynne’s biggest singles.
One Touch is available to stream and download now.
