Ray BLK hits the studio with Paul Epworth

3 May

British singer/songwriter Rita Ekwere, professionally known as Ray BLK, has recorded new music with Paul Epworth.

The Grammy award-winning record producer and songwriter is known for his works with Adele (“Rolling in the Deep”), Usher (“Chains”), Lianne La Havas (“Unstoppable”), FKA twigs (“Pendulum”), Coldplay (“Magic”), Lana Del Rey (“Black Beauty”), Bruno Mars (“Natalie”), Cee Lo Green (“It’s Okay”), Kate Nash (“Mouthwash”) and Florence + the Machine (“Mother”).

Epworth’s resume boasts additional collaborations with fellow producers and songwriters including Benny Blanco, Ammar Malik, Rick Nowels, Bibi Bourelly, Thomas “Kid Harpoon” Hull, Stacy Barthe, Michael “Clams Casino” Volpe, Joel Little, Ari Levine, Philip Lawrence, and Element (Hitesh Ceon & Kim Ofstad).

Meanwhile, BLK – who won BBC’s Sound of 2017 – is expected to release her upcoming project later this year.

The still-untitled project reportedly delivers alliances with Chris Loco (Emeli Sande, Jessie Reyez), Jin Jin (Dido, Fleur East), MNEK (Dua Lipa, Bebe Rexha) and Jordan Riley (Ella Henderson, Calum Scott).

BLK’s critically-acclaimed EP “Durt” – featuring productions from Fraser T. Smith, Joseph “Courage” Carson, SG Lewis, and Felix Joseph – is out now via iTunes and all other digital streaming platforms.
