Corinne Bailey Rae pulls a perfect landing with the smooth neo-soul of Been To The Moon.
Following a six year break mourned by fans worldwide, Leeds’ answer to Joss Stone Corinne Bailey Rae returns with a track that’s more jazz from Mars than pop princess. It has a definite groove, and sultry undertones carrying us out into the stratosphere. With hints of Norah Jones and more than a bit of Jamiroquai, it’s less Myspace, more space-age.
The out-of-this-world video accompanying the track follows a starstruck Rae after crash landing back to earth. While she has been sorely missed, if this is the result of not working, we can think of a couple of singers that could use the same treatment. In any case, time off was clearly well deserved and sorely needed, breathing fresh air back into the singer we know and love.
