Listen: Rae Morris returns with ‘Reborn’

Rae Morris returns with ‘Reborn’

The singer’s second album is coming soon, and she’s playing London’s ICA next month.

Oh hello again, Rae Morris. The singer has made her comeback with new single ‘Reborn’, taken from an upcoming second album.

As the track’s name would suggest, ‘Reborn’ signals a reinvention-of-sorts for the singer, with piano ballads traded out for a world of technicolour.

Talking about the track’s video, shot just outside of Beirut, Morris says: “’Reborn’ was the first song that made me feel something when I started writing for this second record, so it feels fitting for it to be the first thing that people will hear.

“It’s about new beginnings, finding clarity and head space. Noel and I went to the side of a huge lake in Lebanon to shoot the video. The landscape was vast and barren in places but consistently beautiful.”

Rae Morris will play a headline show at London’s ICA on 12th July to preview her new album. Watch the video for ‘Reborn’ below.
