Rita Ora caused quite a ‘Bang’ when her EP of the same name arrived last Friday (February 12).
A joint project with producer Imanbek, the four-song set has been receiving rapturous applause from fans and critics alike.
And while promoting the set is the star’s top priority at present, she already has her attention set on her forthcoming third album – the follow-up to 2018’s hit-housing ‘Phoenix.’
Full story below…
Speaking to Brazil’s POP Line outlet, the singer explained that ‘Bang’ has informed her approach to creating her next LP:
“I wanted to remind people that be in control of yourself, you have to take risks. I challenged myself by doing something like an EP rather than an album. I didn’t want any pressure. I just wanted to experiment. I needed that for myself. When I do my own album, which I will probably end up recording this summer, I now have a new lease of life. [Bang] is like a bridge.”
Elaborating on its possible sound, Ora said:
“I’m doing a lot of songwriting. I’m definitely getting way more in tune with my vulnerable side. There’s going to be a lot more emotion with this record. This year has been such a transformative experience for all of us that to be transparent is really what we need. With this new album, I’m going to really get deep.” [Source I / II]
