"Phoenix" arrives November 23rd.
The last anthem we got courtesy of Rita Ora was her Cardi B, Bebe Rexha and Charli XCX accompanied track "Girls." Since then Rita has been laying low, recently snagging a VMA Award for Best Dance Video for her Avicii collab "Lonely Together." The UK singer comes through with great news today since announcing a release date for her upcoming second studio album, Phoenix.
“One of the most liberating feelings for me is performing and creating music. This album is a true labour of love, and it was important for me to do it my way," Rita stated in an official press release "I’m so appreciative of the love and support from those who worked with me on the record and allowed me to create something I’m really proud of. They gave me the space and freedom to create something from my heart. Both challenging and euphoric at times, I am really proud of and grateful for the journey that the making of Phoenix has taken me on. To my fans, thank you for your patience and thank you always for listening."
The first single off the album is called "Let You Love Me" and will be released on September 21st. The song is described as a mid-tempo pop song with lyrics that reveal insecurities in a new relationship.
