“One of the most liberating feelings for me is performing and creating music," Rita explained. "This album is a true labour of love, and it was important for me to do it my way. I’m so appreciative of the love and support from those who worked with me on the record and allowed me create something I’m really proud of."
It's not been an easy ride for Rita to release Phoenix. A breakdown in her relationship with Calvin Harris in 2014 reportedly led to all of the songs he had produced for the project to be pulled, and then Rita entered a legal battle with her then-record label Roc Nation shortly afterwards.
"It’s been a journey! Sadly, it’s not really been positive", Rita told DIRECTV. "I’ve just had to fight so hard for this album in so many ways!"
Rita recently surpassed Shirley Bassey and Petula Clark as the British female solo artist with the most UK Top 10 hits on the Official Singles Chart.
