The Sea

Corrine Bailey Rae's voice, always an expressive and soulful instrument, resonates with a poignant and newfound depth on The Sea. Loss and grief are recurring themes, yet a sense of beauty and wonder ultimately radiates from the album's dark corners.

Co-produced by Bailey Rae with Steve Brown and Steve Chrisanthou, who produced many of the songs on Bailey Rae's debut album, The Sea was recorded mainly in Leeds and Manchester, England and brings together a new band of musicians.

"There is something miraculous that pushes you along, makes you keep going, makes you carry on. It's really about the mystery of that. In fact, the whole album is about that in a way; it's about loss but it's also about hope, about keeping going and trying to find that beauty," Bailey Rae told the U.K.'s Observer Music Monthly, which hailed The Sea as "an extraordinarily intimate and impassioned album."
