Conversations About Her

Corinne Bailey Rae – The Skies Will Break | Music Video



Corinne Bailey Rae has unveiled the video for her single, “The Skies Will Break”, the lead track from her new album, May’s The Heart Speaks In Whispers. If you would like to see her live, please check the tour dates at the bottom of this article.


“The Skies Will Break” begins piano indicating hope, with a tad of melancholy. The pounding bass drum and strings herald extra energy, completely uplifting it. There is a pleasant vocal refrain, the closing minute or so getting quite intense, hammer and tongs.


The video, directed by Chloe Hayward, takes place at the Brecon Beacons, Wales. Corinne looks like some ancient Egyptian Native American renegade. There is certainly a variety of landscape, deploying contrast to highlight colours to striking effect.

I've always wanted to be involved in the media since before I even left school; to write for a living.I feel most eloquent when mapping out my thoughts on paper or on a computer screen.I studied media at college for two years, and went straight into third year at university studying publishing with journalism.After a range of work experience, I did a magazine journalism course in Bournemouth, a long way away from my hometown of Aberdeen, achieving my NCTJ qualifications.Now I spend my time gladly writing about music.
