I know it’s a while to wait but it will be worth it. Expect lots of dancing, plenty of new music and more than anything, fun. Can’t wait to see you all in April.”

Speaking about the making of the album, the singer said: “It feels so amazing to be back making music, so much has happened recently. Some crazy exciting things but I feel so happy to be back to my first love. Music was the first scene that truly embraced me!
“I feel like these last few years I’ve had to do some exploration to figure out what I wanted to write about musically again and learn new things about myself.
“I’ve been yearning for that escapism, groove and maybe it’s time to say goodbye to the melancholy Jessie.”
