?The dance-pop singer, whose sound evokes contemporaries like Kiesza or Marina and the Diamonds, just came out with a new EP, Skin, and we’re pumped to be premiering a remix of album track “Love Again” by British electro-orchestral foursome Clean Bandit.?–PAPER
British songwriter and piano prodigy, Rae Morris, whose new ?Skin? EP – produced by Ariel Rechtshaid (Haim, Usher, Charli XCX, Vampire Weekend) – just came out in the US on April 28th on Atlantic Records; and includes title track ?Skin? (YouTube), recently featured on E!?s hit series The Royals on May 3rd, as well as another cut from the release, ?For You? featured on last night?s episode as well. Additionally, PAPER premieres ?Love Again? (Clean Bandit remix).
Rae Morris got her first big break after Zane Lowe dubbed ?Closer? (SoundCloud) his ?Hottest Record In The World,? which was written with Jessie Ware and Florence + The Machine collaborator, Kid Harpoon. Rae, a self-confessed PJ Harvey, Kate Bush and Feist fanati, soaks up the lessons learned by her contemporaries like a sponge.? And thanks to her humble charm, she?s attracted a wealth of like-minded, young British singer-songwriters with a similar commitment to their own independent flair, and considers herself part of a loosely-termed ?collective?.
Rae has had more fun than she bargained for on the tour circuit this summer. The past year has taken in her first ever Glastonbury performing with Bombay Bicycle Club and Clean Bandit, which she will perform at solo again this summer, another solo slot at Reading & Leeds where she played a special session for BBC Introducing, as well as a forthcoming support slot with Taylor Swift at her British Summertime show. Add to the festivals her very own UK headline tours and Rae has steadily built a growing fan base, down at the front of her gigs and on social media (with one fan account naming themselves the ?Bae Morrises?).
