The last time we heard from British singer-songwriter, Corinne Bailey Rae, it was with her beautiful and poignant 2010 album, The Sea. That album revealed further a deep beauty in songcraft with its eleven haunting crossover tracks, three of which were successful singles. But she didn’t start her career with The Sea. Her career began with the release of her self-titled debut in 2006. even then, it took her four years to release The Sea, largely due to the death of her husband prior to the issue of the album. To date, the debut has sold over four million copies of the set.
On May 13, Virgin Records will release the third new album from the UK singer. The album is being called The Heart Speaks In Whispers. It will contain 12 new tracks, one of which can be heard below in the embedded new video from the singer.
The new album will be made available on standard CD, a Deluxe Edition CD (with four additional tracks), vinyl 2LP, and DD. If you were to go to the webshop for Corinne Bailey Rae (here), there are bundles being made available with exclusive tees, and signed editions of the new albums. A few of the bundles will include a limited edition 7″ of the single, “Been To the Moon” as well as a signed postcard set.
The new track, “Been To The Moon” is a classic Corinne Bailey Rae gem with a jazz undertone.
