LISTEN: Raleigh Ritchie shares new track & release date for album

Great news! Raleigh Ritchie is set to release his debut album, You’re A Man Now, Boy on 26th February. To celebrate this release, he’s shared the title track from the album, and we already love it.

The track is a heartfelt and honest offering that showcases Ritchie’s soft, yet powerfully hard-hitting vocals perfectly. If the rest of the album is of this quality, we’re going to be in for a real treat when it finally drops next year.

Each track on the album was written by Raleigh Ritchie, in conjunction with acclaimed producers close to him who shared his vision for the project. Producers include Sounwave (Kendrick Lamar), Chris Loco (Kwabs), Justin Broad & Paul Herman (Eminem, Emeli Sande, Izzy Bizu), Mike Elizondo (Dr.Dre / Eminem) and DJ Dahi (Drake).

The album is made up of both new tracks and fan favourites including ‘Never Say Die’, ‘Stronger Than Ever’ and recent single ‘Bloodsport ‘15’. When you download the deluxe version of the album, both ‘Bloodsport ‘15’ and the title track will be available for free download – just a little while longer to wait for all the other tracks.

As well as releasing this project, Raleigh Ritchie will also be performing three shows across the UK during April 2016:

Wednesday 27th April – O2 Academy, Bristol
Thursday 28th April – O2 Shepherds Bush Empire, London
Friday 29th April –  Club Academy, Manchester

‘You’re A Man Now Boy’ is available to pre-order here and tickets for the UK tour are on sale here.
