JORDAN RAKEI - WHAT WE CALL LIFE
Multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, producer Jordan Rakei is back with his fourth studio album, 'What We Call Life', released by Ninja Tune on September 17th, 2021.
'What We Call Life' is Rakei's most intimate and vulnerable record to date. Its verses concern ideas the New Zealand-conceived, Australia-raised, and London-based craftsman found out about himself during hours of therapy, a journey that started quite a while back when he began finding out about the 'positive psychology' as a school of thought.
The topics which manifest on melodies like the lead single "Family", which Rakei says is "the most private" he's been with his verses. "I needed to hit my weakness boundary and be truly fair. It's about my folks' separation in my mid-youngsters yet having love for them regardless," he mentions.
