Jesca Hoop releases Hospital (Win Your Love) the follow up to her 6music playlisted single Born To on September 17th.
Hospital (Win Your Love) tackles "a human quality that causes us to crave injury". As Jesca explains "I recall daydreaming as a child about going to the hospital and fantasizing about the way my family would cater to me if I were to come home with a broken arm, or how cool I would look to my peers if i showed up at school with a black eye. I think this is quite common".
Hospital (Win My Love) is taken from Jesca's new album The House That Jack Built, the recipient of outstanding reviews and the follow up to 2009's Hunting My Dress. The House That Jack Built deftly showcases Jesca's unflinching tendency to pull focus from widescreen to close-up. Part siren song, part grim warning, it achieves a perspective-warping balance between the haunting intimacy of Hoop's delivery and an unconfined air of horizon-scanning grandeur from the outset.
Having showcased the album in a short tour around its release, Jesca has lined up a more extensive tour in September culminating in a show at London's Borderline.
