Rita Ora has announced that she will finally return to the music fold with a new single titled Your Song – which was penned by super songwriter Ed Sheeran.
Considering it’s been written by the multi-platinum selling Divide creator, it’s no doubt got the word ‘hit’ written all over it. It’s the first single to be released from Ora’s untitled, forthcoming album,which is set for release for May 26. ‘I’m so excited to share that my new single Your Song is coming on May 26,’ Rita, 26, shared on Instagram. ‘Can’t wait for you guys to hear it!’ The singer also teased her collaboration with Ed a few weeks ago, sharing a short video of the two working and listening to music together.
Rita’s new music follows her a turbulent few years that saw her sign a new record deal with Atlantic Records after suing her previous label, Jay Z’s Roc Nation, for ‘orphaning’ her in an unfair contract.
Photos of Rita being named honorary ambassador to Kosovo at the Kosovo Embassy in London today have been added to the gallery! Check out the photos below.
Accepting the honour, Rita said: ‘I will wear the title of honorary ambassador with great pride and responsibility.
‘I grew up in Britain, a country which has given me so much for which I’m grateful. But I will always have a special place in my heart for Kosovo, my country of birth.
‘I’m lucky I’m in a position to travel the world and bring more awareness to my country of birth and let the rest of the world know what a beautiful country it is and how friendly the people are.’
The president went on to say: ‘Rita embodies all what we are about as a nation. What we have been through and what we can achieve when given the chance.
‘Beyond her talent and success that makes us all proud we are most thankful that she’s a Kosovo girl that is proud of her roots, the best bridge between Kosovo, the country she was born in and Britain, the country she now calls home.’
