Rita Ora Announces New Album “You & I”, Shares New Song “Praising You” featuring Fatboy Slim
British singer-songwriter Rita Ora announced her third studio album “You & I” would be released on July 14, 2023.
It is her first LP in five years since the 2018 album “Phoenix” and is also the first album under her new label BMG.
Rita Ora shared on social media, “This album really means a lot to me - it's like my diary of the last few years, it's my sound and it just feels so true to me and who I am today ❤️ Welcome to the new era, RO3 is coming 🔓”
From the album, she released the second single called “Praising You” on April 19, 2023.
This time, she remade British DJ Fatboy Slim's 1999 smash hit “Praise You”.
It was written by Rita Ora, Georgia Ku, Karen Poole, Jon Shave, Șerban Cazan, Fatboy Slim and Camille Yarbrough.
Produced by Jon Shave, Șerban Cazan and OAK.
The accompanying music video was directed by her husband Taika Waititi. The video exclusively premiered on Facebook.
Also, Norman Cook (Fatboy Slim) appeared on the video as a cameo.
Rita Ora said of the song, “To not only get Norman (Fatboy Slim)'s stamp of approval, but to actually collaborate with him and pay homage to such a massive song from my childhood was truly a surreal experience. I think this record means something different for everyone, but from my perspective, it's about praising your loved ones and really celebrating those relationships. I'm incredibly honoured that we get to breathe new life into the song and re-introduce it to a whole new generation.”
