If all goes according to plan, come May, the world will have its first album from Corinne Bailey Rae in over six years. The announcement of her junior record alone was enough to send HQ into a craze, but it’s how she’ll return to us that has us particularly worked up. For The Heart Speaks In Whispers, CBR will host a massive roster of guests, including Pino Palladino, James Gadson, Marcus Miller, Esperanza Spalding and Moses Sumney. Today’s offering, “Green Aphrodisiac” was written with sisters, Amber and Paris Strother of KING and immediately harks back to I Want You-era Marvin with blissful, engulfing backing vocals and a breezy groove; a perfect musical accompaniment to these freshly-arrived springtime feels. You can stream the latest from Corinne Bailey Rae down below. Pre-order your copy of The Heart Speaks In Whispers on iTunes today ahead of its official May 13th release.
