Velvety voiced Corinne Bailey Rae visits Cambridge this month as part of her UK tour in support of her third album, The Heart Speaks In Whispers. Her first release in six years, this latest offering sees her serving up a lush slice of blissed-out soul, a million miles away from 2006’s heartbreaking, grief-filled The Sea (which was released shortly after Bailey Rae’s husband passed away).
A string of live shows this summer, including a memorable performance at Glastonbury, proved that she’s lost none of her ability to beguile a crowd with her honey-like voice, winning her effusive praise from critics and fans alike. She’ll be revisiting her back catalogue, which features tracks like Put Your Records On and Trouble Sleeping, plus showcasing her brand-new album, at the Corn Exchange on 7 November.
Tickets are £27.75.
