Raury shared his The Woods album today after posting the songs a few days ago indicating they were part of a larger project. The 22-song album has appearances from Corinne Bailey Rae, Mecca, Jaixx, Telana and Adia. The Georgia-based artist who recently parted ways with Columbia referenced the split on Twitter by saying that “Industry play too many games gonna just wing it, follow my heart and do it my way.”
South London singer Laolu returns after an almost three-year hiatus with new music from her forthcoming All In Me EP. “How To Feel” is taken from a situation the artist recently experienced. Laolu says,
“This song was about something I experienced recently – that pensive insecure feeling of uncertainty in a relationship. The song originally started out as something completely different, but Dunc Suei, the producer, and I decided the song should go in this direction based on the vibe we got while recording, luckily the song turned out to be a proper R&B jam.”
Laolu’s All In Me EP release date is TBA.
