Stream Corinne Bailey Rae's First Album In Six Years 'The Heart Speaks In Whispers'
Since word first got out that Corinne Bailey Rae would be returning to our earthly realm with a new album, the world has been abuzz with anticipation for a project that would mark her very first studio outing since 2010’s The Sea. Well good people, it appears the wait is finally (kinda) over, as a free stream of The Heart Speaks In Whispers has arrived today courtesy of NPR Music’s First Listen. You’ve seen her chart a lunar landscape in the video for the electric “Been To The Moon,” heard CBR join forces with KING on the dreamy reverie-inducing “Green Aphrodisiac.” But today, you can get the full treatment sans price-tag ahead of the album’s official release next Friday, May 13th, boasting collaborations with Pino Palladino, James Gadson, Moses Sumney, Marcus Miller, Esperanza Spalding and more.
