Today RAYE, Spotify's Equal Artist of the Month for November, releases the powerful video for the track 'Escapism.' from her upcoming album, 'My 21st Century Blues', alongside the announcement of her 2023 M21CB tour.

In the visual, RAYE showcases another side of her musical journey, underscoring how diverse her upcoming album will be. A trip-hop inspired song about heartbreak, loneliness, and escaping those emotions, the track features New Jersey rapper 070 Shake, who also appears in the video.

Watch the compelling video below.

The global M21CB tour, which follows October's 'The Story So Far...' performances, will see RAYE perform across the UK, Europe, the United States, and Canada in February and March 2023.

The UK pre-sale begins 10:00AM GMT Wednesday November 16th.

RAYE has had a phenomenal year so far, having been nominated for the Ivors Songwriter Of The Year and returning this summer with the hard hitting, critically acclaimed single 'Hard Out Here.' Added to BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra playlists, with PAPER Magazine describing the track as "outrageous, honest, and incredibly vulnerable." RAYE secured R1 Brits List and released follow up Black Mascara which she performed for BBC Live Lounge alongside her incredible rendition of Kate Bush's 'Running Up That Hill.' She also recently performed 'Escapism' and 'The Thrill Is Gone' on BBC Two's Later... with Jools Holland.

RAYE is currently Spotify UK & IE EQUAL artist of the month, the campaign highlights and celebrates the achievements of women in music across the globe and RAYE will receive billboards in London and Times Square, New York over the next two weeks. On February 3rd, 2023, RAYE will release her debut 'My 21st Century Blues'. This is RAYE part two. It's RAYE on her own terms. It's the RAYE of old, but reloaded. These are songs made by RAYE, for RAYE, but within that they're for everyone who has faced and overcome adversity. They're also anthems for other women in the industry, or stuck in a cycle of misogyny.
