Very much inspired by the visuals in the movie “Mars,” are those in Corinne Bailey Rae‘s long desired return. The British songstress has released a new music video for her new single “Been To The Moon,” which is part of her upcoming album “The Heart Speaks In Whispers.” Her third album, it’s also her first in six years, which is a really long time. So where has this jazzy and bluesy singer been? The moon!?
The moon is only 9 hours away, and Mars is a 4-months one-way journey. So, having “been to the moon” isn’t a valid explanation for Corinne’s long hiatus. Other singers of similar styles and musical persuasions like Esperanza Spalding and Llanne La Havas, have continued to serenade the fans they share with new releases. Llanne released her second studio album called “Blood” on 31 July 2015. And, Esperanza Spalding released her fifth album “Emily D+Evolution” on March 4, 2016.
Dressed in similar colors as Matt Damon’s character in the movie Mars, and accompanied by a backdrop similar to the red planet, brown and dusty, Corinne croons about encountering a lover in her new video for “Been To The Moon.” The moon is a common analogy for falling in love.
Corinne suffered an untold tragedy in 2008, when she lost her husband to a drug overdose. She remarried in 2013, and we can only assume that’s the moon she alludes to in her new single “Been To the Moon.” And, it could also explain the long hiatus. Corinne is married to Steve Brown, a producer who helped produced her second album “The Sea.” The album was released in 2010.
Well, this is 2016, so that explains the 6 years hiatus. From 2010 to 2016, Corinne Bailey Rae must have been over moon.
Corinne gained worldwide fame with her November 2005 debut single “Like a Star.” She followed it up with the full album, eponymously named “Corinne Bailey Rae,” released on 24 February 2006.
The name of the new album “The Heart Speaks in Whispers,” was announced on Corinne Bailey Rae‘s 37th birthday, February 26, 2016. The album will be released on May 13, 2016, and here is the track list below,
