FYI, Rita Ora is “back” this month with a new single, and a hashtag that suggests her third album is coming

It's good to know these things.

Pop star Rita Ora is set to release a new single, ‘You Only Love Me’ this month.

The singer took to Twitter yesterday (4th January) to share a preview of the track, featuring director Taika Waititi, as they watched a fireworks display. The accompanying caption read “SURPRISE. I’M BACK! You Only Love Me XX/01/23 #RO3.”

The hashtag is believed to be in reference to Ora’s long-awaited third full-length album. Since the release of her last album ‘Phoenix’ in 2018, the singer has featured on singles from Kygo, Sigala, David Guetta, Sam Feldt and Netsky. Last year, she also released the standalone song ‘Finish Line’ from the soundtrack to the ESPN docuseries 37 Words.

In February 2021, Ora released a collaborative EP, ‘Bang’, with the Kazakh DJ and producer Imanbek before confirming that she had signed a record deal with BMG. No official release date has been set yet for either ‘You Only Love Me’ or her third album.
