Title: What We Call Life
Label: Ninja Tune
Product Type: VINYL LP
Vinyl LP pressing. Includes digital download. Multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, producer, and songwriter Jordan Rakei is back with his fourth studio album. What We Call Life is Jordan Rakei's most vulnerable and intimate album to date. It's lyrics concern the lessons that the New Zealand-born, Australia-raised, and London-based artist learned about himself during therapy, a journey that began two years ago when he started reading about the 'positive psychology' movement. These themes manifest on songs like lead single "Family", which Rakei says is "the most personal" he's ever been with his lyrics. "I wanted to hit my vulnerability barrier and be really honest. It's about my parents' divorce in my mid-teens but still having love for them no matter what," he explains.
