Jessie Ware has admitted she had to rewrite her whole third album after being told she had ''lost'' herself due to rushing it while she was pregnant.
Jessie Ware was warned she'd ''lost'' herself as a songwriter during the making of her new album.
The 32-year-old singer - who is set to release her third album, 'Glasshouse', in October - has revealed that after playing some of her new music to her long-time collaborator Benny Blanco, he told the 'Wildest Moments' hitmaker that the material didn't sound like her.
The singer shared: ''He said it sounded like I'd lost myself a bit.
''I was pregnant and scared about providing for my child, so my first thought was, 'I have to write a hit'.
''Then I threw all of that out of the window and tried to make music I enjoyed. That's when I feel like my personality came back. I don't know if I wrote a hit but I definitely wrote music that I like more.''
Jessie gave birth to her first child - a baby girl - with husband Sam Burrows in September last year, and she admitted it's transpired to be a turning point in her musical career.
She told the i newspaper: ''It was the best thing that could have happened for my work. I wrote eight of the 12 new songs since she's been born.
''She's made me more focused and more driven. I'm more decisive now.''
Jessie - whose song about her husband, called 'Sam', was co-written by Ed Sheeran - revealed that much of her new album will focus on her family life.
She explained: ''It's about Sam, it's about my mother, it's about waiting to be a mum.
''[Sam] is so oblivious that I've written a lot of songs about him. He doesn't need this adoration or acknowledgement, he's pretty secure in our relationship.
''But I rely on him. He makes it all possible.''
