These days, we all need a reason to dance. Jessie Ware has given us two reasons — “Spotlight” and “Ooh La La” — in the lead up to the June release of What’s Your Pleasure?, her upcoming fourth album. The talented Brit isn’t done taking us to the dance floor yet as she’s dropped another stunner with new single “Save A Kiss.”
“Save A Kiss” begins with an entrancing electronic groove that’s heavy on the kick yet soft in its approach. Jessie takes it from there as she paints a picture of simmering attraction that’s threatening to boil over into passion. “High anticipation, it’s an emotional trap / Don’t know how you do it, you’re always striking the match,” she sings on the opening verse. “And I think I’m gonna burn out, but then you touch me like that / Learning to be patient, you save the best for the last.” Her need for her lover’s touch builds just like the song’s music, waiting for a crescendo that will be a magical kiss at the end of the night. Her vocal captures the breathless infatuation one would feel while falling in love on the dance floor. Meanwhile, the production keeps the rapturous mood going with perfectly placed strings and synths.
Along with “Save A Kiss,” Jessie is also trying to get fans in on her act. She’s already shot scenes for the video along with a few dancers and now she’s offering fans an opportunity to show off their dance moves, too. She’s posted a video of her choreographer showcasing the video’s moves and is encouraging fans to record themselves performing the dance. The best dancers will earn a spot in the video.
