Rita Ora confirms new single Anywhere and shoots music video in New York

The singer's latest track will be released on October 20.

Rita Ora has confirmed details of her new single, called Anywhere.

The track, which was co-written by Rita and Andrew Watt (Camila Cabello's Havana, DJ Snake's Let Me Love You), will be released this Friday, October 20. 

Discussing the inspiration behind the song, Rita said: “I was in a routine, working every day, and found myself day dreaming about breaking out of the city and going on a road trip with my friends and never looking back."

Rita shot the accompanying music video in New York with director Declan Whitebloom, whose previous credits include Jess Glynne's Don't Be So Hard On Yourself and Ain't Got Far To Go, plus Taylor Swift's We Are Never Getting Back Together.
