Dive in: Rae Morris is a risk-taker in the video for ‘Do It’

Rae Morris is a risk-taker in the video for ‘Do It’

She basically has all the fun.

After returning with the triumphant ‘Reborn’ earlier in the year, Rae Morris is back again!

‘Do It’ is the second track from her upcoming, as-yet-untitled second album, which is set to be out early next year. It’s still got that slightly ethereal nature that we’ve come to expect from Rae, with euphoric electro-pop melodies.

Talking about the track, Rae said: “This song is a dare to myself; it’s about daring to take a risk and choosing to take the more exciting route! It kind of exists as a part two of Cold from my first album Unguarded. It’s what happens when you go back into the studio to make more music. Do you write another duet and do a similar thing, or take a risk and do something you’ve never done before? It’s also pretty damn sexy!”

Well, that’s kind of a perfect summation of what’s happening in its accompanying video too! In the clip, directed by Noel Paul, who also took the helm for the visuals on ‘Reborn’, she sets out a personal tale of jumping into the unknown. And has basically all of the fun doing it.

A little later this month, Rae’s going on tour around the UK. The jaunt will see her heading to Norwich, Nottingham, Salisbury and Leeds before rounding it all off with a date at London’s Islington Assembly Hall on 28th September. Tickets are on sale now.
