Soulstress Rita Ray returns with a heart-melting ode to love in new single “No Greater Love”.
Estonian soulstress Rita Ray returns with “No Greater Love”, the second single off her upcoming album. It is a wholesome ode to love, pure and untainted. If Rita Ray’s previous creations have been hinting heart-ache, then this is the first song with an aura of contentment. It is a clear, flawless expression of the blinding admiration a young heart feels towards a freshly found beloved.
Rita Ray continues to explore cinematic and symphonic soundscapes in her creation. “No Greater Love”, as well as the whole album exhibits string arrangements, performed by the Pärnu City Orchestra and arranged by the artist herself. Boundaries have been pushed further than ever not only in terms of arrangements, but also production, done in tandem with the Solid Gold Sound production team. Rita Ray is also joined by her devoted 4-piece band, consisting of Artis Boriss on keys, Ott Adamson on drums, Kristen Kütner on guitar and Jasper Alamaa on bass.
“I started listening to orchestral music before I began writing the second album and totally fell in love with the magic of arranging, which has become one of my secret hobbies. My hope is that the orchestra brings the emotions, environment and message of the songs closer to the listener,” says Rita Ray.
“No Greater Love” is the second taster from Rita Ray’s upcoming album, following the bitter-sweet “Love Ain’t the Same” which was released earlier this year.
