Jess Glynne Exclusive: “I Chose Not To Write A Heartbreak Album”

Watch Jess Glynne's full interview with Jez Welham on Capital XTRA In The Morning.


Although she was going through a "rough break up" at the time, Jess tells Jez Welham why she stayed clear of making a heartbreak album.

Ahead of the release of her highly anticipated debut album 'I Cry When I Laugh,' Jess Glynne has revealed why she decided against writing a heartbreak album, in spite of going through a painful break-up at the time. 

The 'Not Letting Go' singer avoided making a record reminiscent of Adele's iconic '21' album in favour of "an album about hope."

“When i started writing it [I Cry When I Laugh] I was going through a pretty rough break up and I was feeling pretty rubbish," Jess told Jez Welham on Capital XTRA In The Morning.

"But I chose to not write a heartbreak album, because whilst that had happened all my dreams were coming true - I was signing my record deal!" 

She added; "I love heartbreak records but I didn’t want people to listen to a heartbreak record from me."

Jess Glynne's debut album 'I Cry When I Laugh' is released on 21st August.
