5 Jun

British singer/songwriter Rachel Keen, professionally known as RAYE, has teamed up with Jonas Blue and Steve Mac for a new collaboration.

Blue previously teamed up with RAYE on hit single “By Your Side,” which peaked to number six on the UK Singles Chart.

Meanwhile, recent songwriting and production credits by Mac (born Steven McCutcheon) include Rita Ora’s “Your Song,” Liam Payne’s “Strip That Down,” Zara Larsson’s “Don’t Let Me Be Yours,” Clean Bandit’s “Symphony,” Ed Sheeran’s “Shape of You,” Louisa Johnson’s “So Good,” Olly Murs’ “Deeper,” Anne-Marie’s “Alarm,” and James Blunt’s “2005.”

RAYE, on the other hand, is expected to release her next project, which serves as the follow-up to 2016’s “Second,” later this year via Polydor Records.

The still-untitled collection reportedly yields contributions from Illangelo (Jorja Smith), Billy Walsh (Camila Cabello), Jonny Lattimer (Izzy Bizu), Adam Midgley (Dua Lipa), Felix Snow (SZA), Two Inch Punch (Jessie Ware), Adriano Buffone (Janelle Monae), Joel Compass (FKA twigs), Blue May (Denai Moore), Fred Cox (Tori Kelly), Jimmy Napes (Ray BLK) and TMS (Carly Rae Jepsen).

Current promotional single “The Line” – which was produced by regular collaborator Fred Gibson – is now available via iTunes, Apple Music, Amazon, Google Play, Tidal and all other digital streaming platforms.

On the songwriting front, RAYE recently co-penned 5 After Midnight’s “Up in Here” alongside Adam Baptiste, Uzoechi “MNEK” Emenike and Arnthor Birgisson, as well as Tara Carosielli’s “Money” alongside Hannah Yadi and Maaike Kito Lebbing (aka Kito).

She has also contributed to the next projects by Rita Ora [Atlantic], Mabel McVey [Polydor], Era Istrefi [Ultra Music], Rudimental [Atlantic], Anne-Marie [Major Tom’s Music], Naughty Boy [Virgin EMI] and Ellie Goulding [Polydor].
