Australian soul singer Jordan Rakei has seen his stock rise considerably over the years. This year, he probably got one of his biggest looks to date when he was invited to guest on Disclosure's recent album Caracal on the song "Masterpiece." Rather than rest on his laurels, however, Jordan is hard at work on his follow up to his 2014 EP Groove Curse. And, much to our surprise, he's gone and dropped the set's lead single "The Light."
"The Light" is a bright, soulful number that finds Jordan doing what he does best: crafting uplifting music that draws you in. The song's verses find Jordan flexing his tenor over a funky guitar riff as he offers heartfelt advice about living your best life. The tight groove soon breaks open for the shiny, happy chorus that encourages us to embrace the moments of our day as if they were our last. Sure, there's nothing exactly new about the sentiment of seizing the joy in the moment, but Jordan makes the idea sound fresh enough to nod your head to.
Jordan hasn't divulged much information about his upcoming album, including its title and expected date of release. We're sure to be waiting on pins and needles for that info, but until then, enjoy "The Light" right here.
