2017 was a huge year for Jordan Rakei. The talented 25 year old vocalist, producer and songwriter made his debut on Ninja Tune with his album ‘Wallflower’ offering up a distinct take on soul that captured a sonic and emotional awareness that belied his age.
Now in 2018, Jordan has premiered his brand new track, ‘Wildfire’, showcased as part of the singer’s live session with Lauren Laverne on her BBC 6Music show.
“‘Wildfire’ is about dealing with a broken friendship. It explores how necessary it is to allow yourself to move on after you’ve been hurt and how holding a grudge affects your wellbeing,” explains Jordan. “I often write about the concept of overthinking but this track deals more with acceptance for the sake of peace of mind.”
