Multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, producer and songwriter Jordan
Rakei is back with his fourth studio album. ‘What We Call Life’ is
his most vulnerable and intimate album to date, lyrically and
sonically.

While the heart of the record will be familiar to fans of his neo-
soul and hip-hop-infused work, here Rakei dives deeper into his
sound world, merging electronic with acoustic and rugged
grooves with ambient atmospheres, to create something richer,
more detailed and more textural than before.

Earlier this year Jordan released his mix for the coveted ‘Late
Night Tales’ series, including covers of his heroes Radiohead
and Jeff Buckley. In 2020, Jordan contributed an incredible
cover of Donald Byrd’s ‘Wind Parade’ for the ‘Blue Note
Re:imagined’ compilation on the legendary jazz label.

He also released his debut album ‘Small Moments’ under his Dan Kye
moniker on Bradley Zero’s Rhythm Section label to rave
reviews.

For fans of Arlo Parks, Hiatus Kaiyote, Loyle Carner, Tom
Misch.
