Raye – Alien

Every time that Raye announces a new release we get seriously excited. The 17-years-old London-based artist is getting better and better at every track and it seems that nothing can stop her right now. So, it won’t surprise to anybody that she will play the BBC Introducing stage at this year’s The Great Escape.

To celebrate this huge achievement, here’s a new song called Alien, where Rachel free her usual outspoken flow to fantasize about her future feelings on a non-existing person. Here’s what Raye has to say about Alien: “the song represents how I dream to feel about someone in the future, but that someone is non-existent or hiding right now – which is why I call them my ‘Alien’.” – and continues – “the alien in my song is the change that I hope one day someone can show me. I have such a cold rational way of thinking about love and sharing happiness, but this song is almost like a dream I would have. Someone coming along to redefine my perspective. Alien had to be the perfect word to describe this whole feeling, because the whole idea is so alien to me.
