British singer-songwriter – and two time GRAMMY® winner – Corinne Bailey Rae returns today with the release of ‘Been To The Moon’, the first song from her forthcoming album The Heart Speaks In Whispers, which will be released on May 13th.

Written by Corinne and Steve Brown with Paris and Amber Strother from the LA-based future-soul band KING, and recorded in Capitol Records’ Studio A, ‘Been To The Moon’ is a joyous, vibrant and unique track reflected by the video, shot on the stunning volcanic landscapes of Fuerteventura and directed by Favourite Colour: Black.

‘Been To The Moon’ is available now on all streaming sites and as an instant grat download with pre-orders of The Heart Speaks In Whispers. Full details below.

The Heart Speaks In Whispers is rich in fresh ideas and full of emotional energy which surges through its songs like electricity. Recorded both at her studio in Leeds, and in Los Angeles, the album is co-produced by Corinne with Steve Brown, her collaborator on her critically acclaimed previous album The Sea.

The album features a number of notable musicians including Pino Palladino (D’Angelo, Erykah Badu, The Who), James Gadson (Marvin Gaye, Bill Withers), Marcus Miller (Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock), Esperanza Spalding and Moses Sumney (best known for his work with Beck).
Live shows will be announced shortly.
