ARTIST SNAPSHOT: Corinne Bailey Rae


LONDON (CelebrityAccess) — Grammy Award-winning Corinne Bailey Rae, described as the “bewitching Queen of British Soul” in the UK media, has announced new August-September US tour dates in support of her highly-praised new album The Heart Speaks In Whispers (Virgin Records). Corinne will headline shows across the Midwest (Chicago, Minneapolis, Kansas City), South (Dallas, Nashville, Memphis, Charlotte), and East Coast (Boston, New York, Washington DC, Philadelphia) with her stunning live set. Tickets go on-sale Friday, June 17. She has also announced another show with Alabama Shakes in Austin on September 23.

In describing Corinne’s “simmering” performance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, The New York Times praised her “radiant self-assurance along with a touch of bliss.” Corinne will perform on KCRW Morning Becomes Eclectic this morning ahead of her sold-out intimate shows at the Lyric Theatre in Los Angeles on June 9 and 10. A worldwide tour schedule including her June 24 performance at Glastonbury and her July 10 special guest appearance with Stevie Wonder and Pharrell at Hyde Park in London can be found at corinnebaileyrae.com.

Recorded both at her studio in Leeds, and in Los Angeles at Capitol Studios, The Heart Speaks In Whispers is co-produced by Corinne with Steve Brown, her collaborator on her critically acclaimed previous album The Sea. The album features a number of notable musicians including Paris Strother and Amber Strother from KING, Grammy Best New Artist winner Esperanza Spalding, Pino Palladino (D’Angelo, Erykah Badu, The Who), James Gadson (Marvin Gaye, Bill Withers), Marcus Miller (Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock), and Moses Sumney (Beck).

“the boundary-defying, epic music toward which she's long been striving… What places The Heart Speaks In Whispers in the elite category of transcendental genre-busters from Minnie Riperton to Erykah Badu are those big-sky songs that play as a continuation of the Prince-style revolution…"—NPR Music

“Heart represents the best of Rae’s first two albums, connecting the understated charm of her debut with The Sea’s pensive tone. It makes for a fascinating listen, one filled with catharsis and inspiration… her light permeates this record, leaving a shining example of strength and perseverance.”—Pitchfork
