Translucent pistachio green coloured vinyl LP

Multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, producer and songwriter Jordan Rakei is back with his fourth studio album. ‘What We Call Life’ is his most vulnerable and intimate album to date, lyrically and sonically.
While the heart of the record will be familiar to fans of his neo- soul and hip-hop-infused work, here Rakei dives deeper into his sound world, merging electronic with acoustic and rugged grooves with ambient atmospheres, to create something richer, more detailed and more textural than before.
Earlier this year Jordan released his mix for the coveted ‘Late Night Tales’ series, including covers of his heroes Radiohead and Jeff Buckley. In 2020, Jordan contributed an incredible cover of Donald Byrd’s ‘Wind Parade’ for the ‘Blue Note Re:imagined’ compilation on the legendary jazz label. He also released his debut album ‘Small Moments’ under his Dan Kye moniker on Bradley Zero’s Rhythm Section label to rave reviews
For fans of Arlo Parks, Hiatus Kaiyote, Loyle Carner, Tom Misch.
