Amazing Album Alert: Jess Glynne – ‘I Cry When I Laugh’. The 5 best bits.

After what feels like forever, Jess Glynne has finally released her debut album ‘I Cry When I Laugh’ and although it’s not strictly pop, we are in love with it. ‘I Cry When I Laugh’ is the perfect summer album and we’re pretty sure we’ll be playing it for months and months to come.

Now we’re bringing you the five best things about Jess’ debut album and telling you why you should run to the shops and pick up a copy.

1It has some pretty incredible singles on it. 

As you’ll probably know by now, Jess Glynne has become the second British female solo artist to score five UK number ones, and four of those number one singles feature on ‘I Cry When I Laugh’. Those singles are ‘Hold My Hand’, Route 94 collaboration ‘My Love’ and Clean Bandit smash hit ‘Rather Be’ and current number one ‘Don’t Be So Hard On Yourself’.


2There’s an Emeli Sande duet on it!

Remember Emeli Sande? The massive powerhouse vocalist behind Professor Green’s ‘Read All About It’ and her own hit singles ‘Next To Me’ (ooh-hoo!) and ‘Clown’? Well, she makes her return to music with a duet on Jess’ debut. The track ‘Saddest Vanilla’ is one of the album’s highlights.

3‘Saddest Vanilla’ isn’t the only great ballad on the album.

Aside from the Emeli Sande duet, ‘I Cry When I Laugh’ also features some other great ballads such as ‘Take Me Home’. The album also slows down towards the end of the deluxe edition with an acoustic performance of Jess’ duet with Route 94 ‘My Love’.

Number 4There’s some proper pop corkers on it too.

Aside from the ballads, other amazing tracks on the album are found in the form of ‘Gave Me Something’, ‘Ain’t Got Far To Go’, ‘Love Me’, ‘No Rights No Wrongs’, and ‘Bad Blood’ (not a Taylor Swift cover).

5One of the best pop songs of recent times is on it, isn’t that reason enough?

We all know that Jess’ latest single ‘Don’t Be So Hard On Yourself’ is one of the best pop songs of recent times and in context of this album, it sounds even more amazing.
