Jordan Rakei kicks off 2024 with a bang releasing 'Freedom' and unveiling his fifth studio album 'The Loop.'

Jordan Rakei, the Grammy-nominated artist known for his soulful exploration of emotional depths, is captivating fans with his latest single 'Freedom' and the announcement of his fifth studio album 'The Loop.' This exciting reveal also comes with the news of a massive UK & EU tour, promising an unforgettable live experience for music aficionados.


'Freedom,' Rakei's latest single, is a soulful blend, resonating with gospel and soul influences that permeate his upcoming album. The accompanying video, directed by Cal McIntyre, adds visual flair to the song's propulsive energy and powerful message of embracing happiness in life.



'The Loop' marks a significant chapter in Rakei's career, intertwining themes of hope and personal growth. The album, recorded at RAK Studios and self-produced, showcases a departure from Rakei's DIY sound, embracing orchestral arrangements, haunting choirs, and hypnotic beats.

'The Loop,' is set to reflect on the perpetual cycle of life - from childhood to parenthood, and the connection with the inner child. Rakei is set to delve into vulnerability through his lyrics, exploring the never-ending loop we all navigate in life.


'The Loop' is set to not just be an album; it's an invitation to embark on a sonic adventure where soul meets ambition, and freedom echoes through every note.
