As well as releasing a music accompaniment for the recent single, ‘Escapsim.’, RAYE has confirmed a new slate of global tour dates for early next year.
The highlight track is a cut from her upcoming debut album, ‘My 21st Century Blues’, which is set to arrive in full on February 3rd via Human Re Sources. It was released last month and is the fourth single from the record, following ‘Hard Out Here.’, ‘Black Mascara.’, and ‘The Thrill Is Gone.’
“I cannot believe I am writing this,” RAYE has shared via social media. “I was 7 years old when I wrote my first song. 15 years old when I released my first song. I am about turn 25 years old, and I get to say: my debut album, ‘𝐌𝐲 𝟐𝟏𝐬𝐭 𝐂𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐮𝐫𝐲 𝐁𝐥𝐮𝐞𝐬’, is available for pre-order”.
“My first child, my beautiful broken little baby, my healing journey,” she adds. “Thank you for believing in me.”
