    Raye Releases Anticipated Debut Album: My 21st Century Blues

    Raye Releases Anticipated Debut Album: My 21st Century Blues

    One of the UK’s most exciting musical talents, RAYE, has released her highly anticipated new album, My 21st Century Blues, with the news just in of her placement as Feature Album on triple j.

    My 21st Century Blues is a stunning collection of heartfelt and emotional songs. Songs made by RAYE, for RAYE, but within that, they’re for everyone who has faced and overcome adversity.

    As RAYE says: “My 21st Century Blues. My debut album. My ugly complex beautiful mosaic formed from broken pieces of glass from the last 7 years of my life.

    My medicine, my anxieties, and traumas, my unfiltered thoughts. This music accompanied me through my bluest blues, crafted unapologetically and fearlessly with love and tears, and now I can only hope it might provide the same medicine it did for me, for those who choose to listen. I can’t believe it is really happening. My first album.”

    The album includes RAYE’s current smash hit UK No.1 and AUS No. 3 single Escapism. (feat 070 Shake)‘ a no-holds-barred tale of self-medication with drink, drugs, and sex after heartbreak, which just marked RAYE’s triple j Hottest 100 debut for 2022 at  No. 67, has gone gold in the UK, Sweden, Norway, Australia, Finland, Denmark, and New Zealand, Top 5 across Europe and currently climbing the US Billboard Hot 100, in addition to previously released tracks like Black Mascara., Hard Out Here.‘, and ‘The Thrill Is Gone.

    This is RAYE part two. It’s RAYE on her own terms. It’s the RAYE of old but reloaded.

    “Creating this music empowered me to face my demons. I called a lot of these people up and was like ‘you did this, and you did that – remember this?

    You owe me an apology and you’re never going to be able to treat another woman like that again’. On the album, I’m not going to be naming names, but I will be telling these stories. I will be explicitly fucking saying it.”
