‘The Fruits’ is a collaboration with Raye and LA production duo DJDS. It’s the first preview of a six-track project, due in late spring.
We met Col3trane in a Neu feature last year, in which he talked about staying true to his vision, and how success has rolled itself out in front of him after bedroom beginnings.
“I have goals for myself now, while I never really did when I started,” he told us. “When I was writing songs in my bedroom, and getting like 200 plays on SoundCloud, the dream was to perform at a show. Then you do that, and think ‘I wish I could perform at a show that people pay to come and see’. And then you do that. ‘I wish I could have a song on Spotify!’. Done. ‘I wish I could have a million plays on Spotify.’ Done. They just keep getting bigger and bigger, and now…world domination, you know. Let’s give it a go.”

“Ironically, this is the only upbeat dance track on the album, but I used my voice this time to tell a raw unfiltered story.”
For RAYE, it’s been an uphill struggle to be heard. But having spoken out and forced a line in the sand, now the singer is finally able to claim the career that’s rightfully hers.
It’s her first release as an independent artist.
