Earning himself a formidable international reputation though high profile releases via Ninja Tune and curating the latest edition of the prestigious Late Night Tales compilation series, Aotearoa-born and London-based soul / jazz / RnB innovator Jordan Rakei has announced his fourth studio album What We Call Life is all set to launch this coming spring. He's unveiled the sumptuous first cut from that record today, acknowledging his roots with 'Family', which the singer and multi-instrumentalist says is his most personal song to date. Rakei opened up about the origins of his shimmering and emotional latest release...

“I wanted to hit my vulnerability barrier and be really honest. It’s about my parents’ divorce in my mid-teens but still having love for them no matter what.”

Jordan Rakei's new album 'What We Call Life' launches on Friday 17th September via Ninja Tune.
