In a new interview with Official Charts, she said she wrote “40 or 50” songs for this era, and doesn’t want to sit on them until the next album cycle because her follow-up will likely sound totally different.
“[It’ll] not just include three remixes,” she promised. “I had so many songs that didn’t make the record… but that doesn’t mean they’re not good! I wrote maybe 40 or 50 songs.
“I know that my next record is not going to be the same as What’s Your Pleasure? so when I listened to them, it felt maddening that I had all these brilliant songs that I couldn’t [originally] put on the record.
“They fit so well in this What’s Your Pleasure? world so it made sense to keep them for this rather than to make another record.”
She added that “now actually, weirdly, the deluxe has created this new story and the new songs work really well together which is exciting. I think that if my fans liked What’s Your Pleasure?, this will keep them dancing a bit longer.”

Pleasingly, Jessie will be a guest judge on RuPaul’s Drag Race UK next week. She’s also recently rescheduled her upcoming UK tour until later in the year.
