She has also unveiled the video for her new single ëAtleticoí, a beautifully uplifting track, once again perfectly showcasing her astounding, ethereal vocals and her newfound electro-pop sensibilities. The track is taken from Raeís upcoming second album, “Someone Out There”, due for release on 2nd Feb 2018.The video was shot with Noel Paul (Bat For Lashes, Ryksopp), who Rae collaborated with on the videos for “Reborn” and “Do It”, and sees her take in New Orleans, first as a nervous tourist and then joyfully embracing the vivid culture, and people, of the city.

In this video Iím a solo soul-searcher. New Orleans was the perfect place for this video because it’s such a joyous city with the most infectious energy. That’s exactly what Atletico is about – having too much energy and not knowing what to do with it. “Someone Out There” marks a stark sonic shift for the Blackpool native, seeing Rae hone her craft as a true creative force, with input in all creative aspects of the album, from the lyrics and music, to the imagery and artwork, music videos and production.

Bold and ambitious, the record focuses in on complex, electronic elements, marrying perfectly with Raeís soaring and ethereal vocals, with production from Fryars, Ariel Rechtshaid (HAIM, Adele), My Riot (London Grammar, Bloc Party, RHODES), Fred Gibson (Brian Eno, RAYE, M.O., Stefflon Don), Buddy Ross (Frank Ocean) and Starsmith (Jess Glynne, Clean Bandit, Kwabs, Ellie Goulding), as well as mixing from Dan Grech (Halsey, Wolf Alice, Lana Del Ray, Regina Spektor).

Following signing to Atlantic Records at just 17, Rae took her time, honing her craft and developing her sound through a string of EP releases. Following her appearance in the BBC Sound Of 2015, Rae released her debut album in early 2015 to much critical acclaim. Produced by Ariel Rechtshaid (HAIM, Charli XCX), the album hit the top 10 in the UK album charts and announced her as one of the most relevant, exciting new artists to come out of the UK. She also found time to lend her unmistakeable vocals on collaborations with Clean Bandit ëUp Againí, Bombay Bicycle Club (“Luna”), Fakear, Kaytranada and Rejjie Snow amongst others.
