Soon as you saw her name, you couldn’t help but hear her song “Put Your Records On” in your mind, right? Corinne Bailey Rae is the celebrated artist we grew to love in such a short period of time before the love of her life died suddenly in a drug overdose incident in 2008. Since that incident, she’s been in hiding but now she’s ready to come back after what she’s calling an “extremely, extremely destructive” time in her life.
Rae said that she wasn’t interested in making music since her husband, who was also her best friend, died. She was only interested in breaking stuff up. She kept people around her constantly and was finally able to return to the studio. She is releasing a new album, “The Sea”, soon. She’s somewhere near making her return to the music scene. Check out her courageous attempt to return after such an abrupt departure here.
