Rita Ora has returned with her first single in nearly two years, “Your Song.” The uplifting track, all about being in love, was written by fellow Brit Ed Sheeran and produced by Steve Mac. “Your Song” is the first taste of what’s to come from Rita this year, who last released an album five years ago in 2012 (her debut LP Ora).
During an Instagram live last month, Rita confirmed that her sophomore album is on the way, and that fans can expect its release later this year in the fall. She said, “The album is going to come out in November and it’s going to be major. I’ve been working on it for ages. There’s some amazing people on it and amazing surprises.”
Aside from putting an album together, Rita has been very busy with other projects in TV and film, including her role as Mia Grey in the Fifty Shades of Grey series, her hosting gig on the new music competition show Boy Band, as well as the rebooted America’s Next Top Model, and she was a judge on BBC’s The Voice and The X Factor UK.
Now, Rita is focusing on her music career, and has kicked off this chapter of her career with “Your Song,” which she performed live during a recent visit to iHeartRadio’s studios in New York City. But while at iHeartRadio HQ, the 26-year-old also opened up about her 28 tattoos during an exclusive interview. These are Rita Ora’s Tattoo Stories. Read on below.
