Raleigh Ritchie Announces New Album “Andy”, Premieres New Song “Aristocrats”
- London-based R&B singer-songwriter and actor Raleigh Ritchie announced his sophomore album “Andy” will be released on Jun 26, 2020. It is his first LP in four years.
The album title was inspired from a nickname given to his grandfather, which Raleigh Ritchie is real name Jacob Anderson, has since inherited.
Raleigh Ritchie said, “Andy is a little wink to myself. It’s saying, this is you speaking right now, this is you saying what you have to say.”
From the album, he premiered a new song “Aristocrats” on May 6th with an accompanying music video directed by Raleigh Ritchie himself.
It was written by Chris Loco, Chad, the Polymath, Alessandro Alessandroni Jr. and Raleigh Ritchie.
He said, “British history is complicated, especially as a POC. And history is everything, it’s what we learn from to help us build our future. In school I didn’t learn much about British history aside from the country’s victories and a version of some of it’s atrocities. Sometimes it’s a confusing place, and although I love my country, I don’t always feel loved by it. With this video I wanted to explore this and my relationship to my own history and the history of those who came before me.”
