Rita Ora has confirmed she will release her first album in six years on November 23.
The ‘Anywhere’ singer will give fans a taste of what to expect from her long-awaited follow-up to her 2012 debut LP, ‘Ora’, by releasing the lead single ‘Let You Love Me’ on Friday (21.09.18).
Confirming the title ‘Phoenix’ after it leaked online over the weekend, the 27-year-old pop star said: “Thank you for your patience and for listening
“I’m so happy to release ‘Phoenix’. I’m really proud of this album and excited for everyone to hear what I’ve been working on.
“A huge thank you to everyone that’s been part of my musical journey.”
The record will feature Rita’s previously released collaboration with Liam Payne, ‘For You’, and her bisexual anthem ‘Girls’ featuring Charli XCX, Bebe Rexha and Cardi B.
A full tracklisting for the album is yet to be unveiled.
The ‘Girls’ hitmaker recently revealed her record will drop later this year, after being plagued by delays, including a split from her Jay-Z’s record label Roc Nation.
Rita recently said: “It’s definitely going to come out this year, and I say that because my journey’s been so up and down that if it’s not out this year, I will literally go mad.
“I’ve just put out single after single after single.”
The ‘Southpaw’ actress previously admitted she went through a “rollercoaster of emotions” after going her separate ways from Roc Nation and it left her struggling to put out new music.
She said: “I had a bit of an issue, publicly, with putting out music which got me really, really, kind of devastated, and I was really down, and then I was really angry, and then I was really frustrated, and then I was really happy that it was happening … It was all these emotions, so my album is definitely a rollercoaster of emotions … I’m still crazy, like, I still love to go out and party. Everyone who knows me knows that I love to have a good time, but I wanted this album to also be [something] you could put on and vibe with your friends. There’s a lot of ups and downs, but I’m very, very proud of it.”
