I have a massive soft spot for female singer songwriters. So much so that I’m sure it has to detrimental any street cred that I may or may not have! Corinne Bailey Rae (CBR) is one of my favourites of recent years, falling in love with her vibe after seeing her sing "Just Like a Star" on Later…with Jools Holland. She followed that up with her eponymous debut album and a tour with James Morrison supporting her. This song "It Be’s That Way Sometimes" is available as a FREE DOWNLOAD via Amazon – though you have to download their gash "Amazon Downloader".
This comes out weeks before her second album "The Sea" is due to be released on the 6th February. "It Be’s That Way Sometimes" isnt actually on the official track list for the album but comes as an i-Tunes bonus download – or free here!
Since the release of her first album CBR lost her husband Jason in a suspected drugs overdose and so the this album is set to reflect those personal themes. This song is decent enough, but in no way her best. Its definately worth a listen and a download. As this didn’t make the grade for second album we can expect that "The Sea" will be strong and one to look out for!
