A LOVE story lies behind Blackpool songstress Rae Morris's bold and beautiful second album, Someone Out There, released somewhat tardily after her January 2015 debut, the top ten success Unguarded.

She burrowed underground, went back to basics and focused on writing solely with her prior collaborator, Fryars, and as they sent musical messages back and forth, they fell headlong in love while creating the songs.

The album's spirit is typified by the single Do It with its clarion call to let go and leap into the unknown, while the most bravura number is the opening Push Me To My Limit, where Morris pushes her voice to Bjork heights against a stark soundscape also reminiscent of the Icelandic innovator.

Morris is ubiquitous on her album, involved in artwork, videos and production, as much as the songwriting and the electronic palette, but she is canny in her collaborators, not only Fryars but such producers as Ariel Rechtshaid, My Riot and Starsmith. This return is a Rae of light.
