Jess Glynne Interview
Jess Glynne interview: I struggled to find acceptance
Updated: 22 May 2018
Pop quiz for dummies: who’s the most successful female British artist in UK chart history? Not Adele, Annie Lennox, Kate Bush, Dua Lipa or Lulu. It is, naturellement, Jess Glynne.
The north Londoner has reached Number One six times. That’s two times wholly under her own steam (with Hold My Hand and Don’t Be So Hard On Yourself) and once each as the voice of collaborations with Clean Bandit (Rather Be), Route 94 (My Love), Tinie Tempah (Not Letting Go) and, in March, Rudimental (These Days).
“It is mad, innit?” Glynne grins. “I don’t want to sound ungrateful but it doesn’t feel like it’s a fair title. Yes, I was a part of all those songs… but it just feels weird…” she trails off. “It’s for those other artists as well.” She’s the common denominator, though. “Yeah, I suppose,” she acknowledges, carefully.
As musical achievements go, it’s impressive by anyone’s measure. It’s especially meaningful as Glynne, 28, has achieved that in four years, and before she’s even released her second album. Why, then, is she coming back in tears?
In the first frame of the video for her new single, I’ll Be There, Glynne is crying as she announces her return with the opening lyric: “When all the tears are rolling down your face…”
“I know!” she laughs over lunch in a private room in a Soho members’ club. She’s rocked up in combat trousers, vest and a bulky black denim jacket. Her cascade of red hair is crushed into a black baseball cap bearing the legend “Woman Is Power” and a picture of Nefertiti.
“I was probably in a bit of negative space,” she admits of her mindset going into last month’s video shoot in Mexico, “but that burning house behind me in the video was me walking away from it.”
Emblematic artistic license aside, Glynne has, it seems, been through the wringer. Some of it is the result of the whirlwind that comes of being a hugely successful artist from the start — her debut album I Cry When I Laugh (2015) has sold almost one million copies.
“You get asked to do a million gigs and fly here and fly there” is her pithy summation of a worldwide album promotion campaign that lasted the best part of two years. She recalls a moment in the three-story Victorian house she bought in Stoke Newington and barely lived in. “I was in my room, with a wake-up call at stupid o’clock in the morning, a suitcase on the floor, s*** everywhere, in tears, having a complete meltdown. And that happened a few times.
“I’d be standing there, face covered in spots because of stress, so insecure, so tired, I don’t want to do this … And my mates are going, ‘Oh, we’re off to the pub …’ And I’d be like [sobbing] ‘I’ve got to f****** fly to America to do stupid TV, and you’re getting to go to the pub.’ I just felt I was missing out on life.”
Glynne was this frank, this engaged, from the off. When I first interviewed her for the Standard, in spring 2015, she freely revealed a boozy “lost year”, a spell in therapy and the trauma of a relationship that left the musician in “a dark place… She just f***** me over. It was the first girl I’d ever fallen in love with.”
Glynne admitted that she had never previously discussed her sexuality. I remember wondering how she’d cope with being asked for the next two years if she was bisexual. She nods.
“When we talked, I’d made the decision, to be honest rather than it comes out later. With the majority of my songs, there is a message, a struggle, something I’ve been through. So you know what? I was in a relationship with a girl, and this is where the first album came from. And, yeah, I definitely struggled in my late teens, accepting life,” she confesses.
