Corinne Bailey Rae spoke with The Scotsman about how she embraced the pain she’d experienced from the death of her husband Jason Rae in 2008 when making her second album ‘The Sea’. Rae died after an accidental overdose of methadone and alcohol. “I wanted to be open,” the 30-year-old explained. “I’m aware that I can’t hide any of my feelings. With music I feel like it’s the one time when I don’t have to think and I don’t have to contrive anything. So that’s how this record turned out. It’s not contrived, it’s just open.”
