It’s been a while since Corinne Bailey Rae released some new music but we’re so glad to hear she’s back on the scene.
With the release of her new album, “The Heart Speaks In Whispers”, less than two months away, her new single, ‘Stop Where You Are’ tells us it’ll be worth the wait.
It’s a delicate acoustic release and it builds towards what can only be described as an anthemic, sing-along chorus:
Stop where you are
Under fading stars
This is the world we’ve made
There is no better place, it’s true
Light a fire where you are
The singer also gives us breathtaking visuals with a clip for the inspirational ‘Stop Where You Are’ that captures the song’s message of quiet strength quite elegantly.
“When I first thought of the video for Stop Where You Are I imagined being on the top of mountain or with a group of friends sitting around a fire at night time – it is easy to appreciate your life in those moments. However, I was impressed by the favourite colour black video treatment because it located the song in an urban environment, in places you don’t necessarily feel safe and around people you don’t know. It’s harder to appreciate your life when you are waiting for a bus in the rain, or rushing to work, yet all these moments are precious and should be valued. The video to me speaks of the way we sometimes judge each other based on how we look without knowing each others stories. I love how the people in the film break down the imagined barriers between themselves in order to be together in the moment.” ~ Corinne Bailey Rae
