British singer-songwriter Corinne Bailey Rae has launched her six-part podcast series, exploring the themes and personal experiences that inspired the creative process behind her critically acclaimed album – ‘The Heart Speaks In Whispers’.
Acting as narrator, interviewer and guide, the award-winning singer delves deep into her passions and presents a fascinating collection of subjects with the help of a wide range of experts, philosophers, authors, artists and musicians.
The 37-year-old Corinne takes the listener on a journey through topics such as the restorative power of nature, the therapeutic powers of music and the incredible ways we can control our own reality through our dreams.
“I wanted to do these podcasts to explore the themes of the album – how we respond to nature, what we can learn from listening to our bodies, paying attention to our dreams, following our instincts and being in the present moment”, she said.
“I talked with fascinating people about their lives, struggle and journeys and I was moved, inspired and intrigued by each speaker. There is something engaging in each of these podcasts. The heart speaks in whispers. We’ve got to listen”.
Although the album is hosted on audioBoom, the full series of all six podcasts is available for immediate download via iTunes, Googleplay and Spotify.
This is Corinne’s third studio album, has already received 4 and 5 star reviews since its release in May. With MOJO hailing her resurgence as “a brilliant and very welcome return”, Q Magazine declaring Corinne is “getting it right again [with] sultriness and life-affirmation”, and NPR calling it a “boundary defying epic album”, she has wowed both critics and fans worldwide.
Corinne has also been highlighted by President Obama in his just published Summer Playlist, where he picked Corinne’s recent track ‘Green Aphrodisiac’ as one of his favourite tracks.
She will be doing her first UK headline tour in five years, this autumn. Running from 28 October to 8 November across the UK, Corinne’s tour will land in Manchester on 5 November at the Albert Hall.
