2018 album with 4 bonus tracks. Also available as CD.
Rita Ora will release her long-awaited second album, ‘Phoenix’, November 23rd. ‘Phoenix’ arrives six years after Ora’s 2012 debut, Ora. Over the past few years, Ora has released several singles that will appear on the record, including “your Song”, “Anywhere” and “Girls” which featured Cardi B, Bebe Rexha and Charli XCX.
Speaking to Esquire Middle East, Rita admitted she feels like she's starting again as she readies herself for the release of her first album in six years. 'I feel like a brand new artist,' she said. 'I didn’t really know where I stood as it had been so long since I had released some music, but I’m doing things differently this time. 'I am trying to modernise the way music is going today, and because of online streaming there really aren’t any rules anymore.'
In a statement, Ora said of ‘Phoenix’, “One of the most liberating feelings for me is performing and creating music. This album is a true labour of love, and it was important for me to do it my way. I’m so appreciative of the love and support from those who worked with me on the record and allowed me to create something I’m really proud of. They gave me the space and freedom to create something from my heart. Both challenging and euphoric at times, I am really proud of and grateful for the journey that the making of ‘Phoenix’ has taken me on.”
