Corinne Bailey Rae ?? Corinne Bailey Rae is set to release her new studio album, 'The Sea', via EMI on 1 February 2010. Early reviews of the album are already hailing it as one of the must have releases of next year. The first single to be taken from the album, titled 'I'd Do It All Again', will be released on the same day. ?? Corinne Bailey Rae started work on the album back in 2007 after a whirlwind two years that saw her go from unknown Leeds singer-songwriter to multi-platinum international fame. The tragic loss of her husband in 2008 led her to take a complete break and it was almost 12 months later that she began work again. ?? 'The Sea' is a defining record for Corinne Bailey Rae as she breaks boundaries and moves into different musical realms. The LP is set to be one of the albums of 2010 with early listeners citing Curtis Mayfield, Jeff Buckley, Stevie Wonder, Björk, Marvin Gaye, Radiohead, Nina Simone and Pink Floyd as influences but with a unique touch which is all her own. ?? Corinne Bailey Rae has announced that she will be performing at the 02 Shepard's Bush Empire in London on 24 February 2010. ?? ??
Massive Attack ?? Also out in February 2010 is the highly anticipated release of Massive Attack's fifth studio album. 'Heligoland' will be released via Virgin Records on 8 February 2010 in the UK and on 9 February in the US. ?? The much anticipated new album will feature an all star cast of guest vocals from Damon Albarn, Hope Sandoval, Martina Topley-Bird, Guy Garvey and Tunde Adebimpe. Damon also plays bass on ''Flat Of The Blade' and keyboards on 'Splitting The Atom' while Portishead's Adrian Utley plays guitar on 'Saturday Come Slow'. The band also collaborated with DFA's Tim Goldsworthy on selected tracks. ?? ??
