Rita Ora - Rita Ora: 'Calvin Harris Romance Inspired New Record'
The R.I.P. star dated Harris for a year before their split was confirmed earlier this month (Jun14), and she has now cited the romance as the main inspiration behind her upcoming second album.
Ora reveals her new songs detail her "life story" from the time she met Harris, covering their initial infatuation up until the end of the relationship.
She tells Australian Radio host Kent 'Smallzy' Small on Nova Fm, "I just knew I wanted to do an honest, vulnerable, love album... I had an amazing experience with a feeling of love and it was probably one of the biggest inspirations for this record... It was a big inspiration for this record. You can tell... from the first track to the 12th... that it's a build. It went from me walking into the studio single to me being in a relationship and talking about the honeymoon period and feeling incredible and nothing they do can go wrong to me figuring it out that... then it dies down and... then, you still don't have to be afraid of love. And you can still have hope in it... Whatever age you are. It's what that's about. It's the story, you hear it in the record. It actually is my life story."
The currently untitled record is expected to be released in the autumn (14).
