Rising superstar-in-waiting Raye has been hard at work on new material for the better part of a year, although she did still find time to put on her first headline show as well as support Raleigh Ritchie on his UK tour (so much so that she's joining him on his upcoming tour also).

Her debut album for Polydor Records is still in progress but Raye looks set to release the Back2theWinter EP shortly, preceded by the brilliant 'Distraction' (produced by FRED). "It's just a pretty simple story of me trying to distract myself from some idiot!" she told The Beat Magazine. "By verse 3 in the song I've managed to empower myself enough to cut him out and ignore his calls. We last minute put in an epic outro where you can imagine me having a great time because I won!"

'Distraction' is available to download and stream now from all the usual platforms.
