Prepare Pigs for Flight: Rita Ora’s Next Album Finally Has a Release Date
The Phoenix is finally primed to rise from the ashes — just a few years after its scheduled takeoff.
Rita Ora, whose first album Ora dropped in 2012, has been insisting to eager fans in the years since that her sophomore work wasn't far behind. Finally, though, she's put a concrete date to the vow, and you can expect long-awaited LP Phoenix to take to the skies on November 23, Ora tweeted Tuesday (September 18).
"My sophomore album is NOW AVAILABLE for preorder and presave," she wrote with the link above, and added that those who take advantage of the offer will be eligible for early access to European tour dates.
And fans are going absolutely wild over the news.
"DO YOU KNOW HOW GOOD IT FEELS TO FINALLY PRE-ORDER YOUR SECOND ALBUM AFTER 6 YEARS. I AM SOBBING," one wrote, while another noted "I’ve waited on this day for 6 years i can’t believe this is finally happening. i’m so proud of u and everything you’ve done/achieved in that time! you’re amazing omg i can’t believe it’s real wtf CONGRATS ILY."
Ora, for her many exceptional pop tracks ("I Will Never Let You Down," "Radioactive," the Ed Sheeran-penned "Your Song"), has nevertheless seen little commercial success where American markets are concerned. She's netted a handful of No. 1 tracks and a No. 1 album in the United Kingdom, but has only hit the United States Top 10 once with 2014's "Black Widow" — her collaboration with Iggy Azalea reached No. 3.
