Jordan Rakei has shared a new track, titled "Wildfire."  

"Wildfire" is the UK 25-year-old vocalist, producer, and songwriter's first new music since his Wallflower album, released last year via Ninja Tune. Through the summer, he graced stages at Glastonbury, Dimensions, North Sea Jazz Festival, Farr Festival and more before selling out his debut headline US tour. He ended the year with a prestigious Album Of The Year nomination at Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide Awards and was voted #2 in the shortlist.

We're told that the track is about dealing with a broken friendship. "It explores how necessary it is to allow yourself to move on after you've been hurt and how holding a grudge affects your wellbeing,” explains Jordan. “I often write about the concept of overthinking but this track deals more with acceptance for the sake of peace of mind.”

"Wildfire" is out now with a full stream below.
