Corinne Bailey Rae’s The Sea Released Today

Print

Four years and four million album sales after her self-titled debut album comes Corinne Bailey Rae‘s long-awaited second album, The Sea. For the 30 year-old singer and songwriter from Leeds, this meant politely declining the suggestions that she work with this or that big-league producer in this or that big-money studio. The first single “I’d Do It All Again,” one of many highlights on album, is a sweeping, defiant declaration of love and faith. The Sea will undoubtedly elevate Bailey Rae beyond her already-considerable achievements and put her up there with the all-time greats.

“Lost Where I Belong” by Andreya Triana

Andreya Triana – Lost Where I Belong from Ninja Tune on Vimeo.
Directed by Daniel Chester and Dave Prosser and produced by Sweetworld.
Live-action directed by Robert Sanderson.

We’re just like you: we get put on to the best new artists, the likes of which we might have never heard, by Gilles Peterson and his magical radio shows. Andreya Triana is one of those artists. Her tracks stand out in the latest GPWW (Worldwide Family Mixtape: Sbtrkt) and we searched to find that Andreya is unsurprisingly a Ninja Tune artist.

This is the first single from her forthcoming debut album, Lost Where I Belong, co-written with Fin Greenall (aka Fink) and produced by Simon Green (aka Bonobo).
