Releasing its much anticipated follow-up Always in Between in 2018, the record swiftly followed-suit went straight in at the top of the UK charts. Making history as the first ‘British female solo artist to have seven number one singles in the UK Singles Chart’ with its lead track "I'll Be There"; Glynne went on invade the charts with a string of killer singles from the record including "These Days" (with Rudimental, Macklemore & Dan Caplen), "All I Am", "Thursday" and "One Touch" (with Jax Jones).

Taking her pop to the people, Jess embarked on her mammoth Always in Between Tour throughout 2018-19, playing huge shows across Europe, the UK and the United States.

That same year, she also joined the Spice Girls as a special guest on their Spice World tour; further cementing herself as a household name and a force of nature on the live stage.
