Stephanie Rainey Announces New Single ‘Sorry’

November 3, 2017

Stephanie Rainey has announced the highly anticipated release of her brand new single ‘Sorry’ on 24 November 2017.

‘Sorry’ is the follow up to singles ‘100 Like Me’ and ‘Nothing of You Left to Love’ which saw Stephanie Rainey achieve almost 1 million spotify streams and considerable radio airplay in Ireland on their release.

With ‘Sorry’, Stephanie Rainey returns with the heartfelt sound that propelled her into the spotlight with her self release ‘Please Don’t Go’ which has now accumulated some 10 million streams across platforms.

Stephanie Rainey’s headline tour of Ireland sees her play Dolans, Limerick on 16th November , Cyprus Avenue (Cork) on 26th November, Whelans (Dublin) on 29th November and The Slaughtered Lamb (London) as special guest with Beoga on 30th November.

Speaking about the track, Stephanie Rainey said:

When I wrote Sorry it reminded me of ‘Lean On Me’ by Bill withers. It has the same message and a little bit of the same vibe.

We were lucky enough to record this with some of the incredible singers from the London Gospel Choir. It was an absolute honour and definitely a stand-out moment for me from the past few years. Sometimes when you’re recording something, there’s just a vibe in the room, a real energy that everyone is part of and this was one of those tracks. It’s got heart and I’m really proud of it. 

I’ve been excited about people hearing this song. There’s no nervous energy attached to it because it just feels very honest and raw. It’s taking me back to how this all began with Please Don’t Go and that feels good. We’ve had an amazing year with the last 2 singles connecting and I hope people get the feeling from this track that was intended, 

My favourite line from the song is…

‘I’ve known you since our freckles faded, 

So I know what you’re going through’

I always say to people, when you hear this song, think of someone. It could be your best friend, your partner, your Mum, Dad, Brother, Sister, whoever. Keep them in mind. Or else think of yourself, and hear it as a sort of letter to yourself. It makes it feel very different”.

‘Sorry’ will be available for download across all digital platforms from 24 November 2017.
