Track of the Day: Rae Morris - Skin

Rae Morris, simply put, has all the making of one of 2014's most exciting talents. 

At just 18 years old, she's managed to cram an impressive amount into her fledgling career; her track 'Don't Go' was used in the final ever scene of Skins, she supported the likes of Lianne La Havas & Noah and the Whale, Appeared on material from Bombay Bicycle Club, put out three EP's of her own AND managed to get herself signed to Atlantic Records. Not bad from the Blackpool-native.

With the release of her new track, 'Skin', taken from her upcoming debut album (details to be announced) due out this summer, there's clearly no sign of her her slowing down in 2014. The track received it's first play from Zane Lowe, a man who clearly values the maturity and depth she wields to create beautifully simple left field pop. Here's what the girl herself had to say about 'Skin':

'Skin is so simple and honest. There's nothing over complicated about human instincts and emotion. Recording it with Ariel Rechtshaid, and making the whole album, was very similar to Skin; a natural and uncomplicated process around amazing people and super talented musicians. I think after recording this song, the sound for the rest of the record became really clear.' 

The track is available to download for free here
