Check out KCRW’s new Album Preview, the latest CD from UK songstress Corinne Bailey Rae called “The Sea.” The artist took a 4-year hiatus after the release of her Grammy nominated debut and is back with intimate new material inspired by personal upheaval. “The Sea” was recorded following one of the darkest times in Corinne’s life, after the sudden death of her husband in 2008. Corinne’s voice, always expressive and soulful, resonates with a poignant and newfound depth on the new tracks. Loss and grief are recurring themes yet a sense of beauty and wonder ultimately radiates from the album’s dark corners.
“The Sea” will be available on-demand January 18 through February 16, 2010
