Corinne Bailey Rae recently visited Walmart Soundcheck to discuss the follow-up to her Grammy-nominated debut album. The British talked about the disc’s first single ‘I’d Do It All Again’, the inspiration of painter Frida Kahlo, and why she called her new record ‘The Sea’.
“The reason I wanted to put ‘I’d Do It All Again’ as the first song is because I feel that it is a really good reflection of the whole record,” Corinne explained. “It starts with just me playing my guitar, and it’s really sort of intimate and really personal. I feel like it kind of blossoms out into something else, bringing the drums in, bringing the guitar. By the time it gets to the chorus, it’s really sort of a big production, and we’ve got the strings and we’ve got the organ. I felt like it was a really good taste of the record. It has these intimate moments but we then go to something more dramatic and more layered.”
