Following the release of her 2018 LP SIGN, LA based artist RAIGN is back with her new single “Causing Love”, a delicate slice of expressive alt-pop.
Transporting the listener to a fantastical realm of enduring love, the London-born artist’s honeyed vocals soar across the track’s glittering soundscape, accompanied by crashing drum patterns and electrifying guitar rhythms. Co-written with multi-platinum German producer David Jürgens and produced with long-time collaborator Robbie Lamond (Ellie Goulding), “Causing Love” is further proof of RAIGN’s ability to expertly sculpt her sound and deliver breath-taking results.
“‘Causing Love’ was first penned on a writing trip in Berlin. I had always wanted to go to Germany because my father was born there. At the time I was just finding myself as an artist and exploring the romantic side of my sound”, RAIGN explains.
“The track’s emotions came from my hypnotic conversations with a mystery, angelic man. Around that time, I realised that my responsibility as an artist was to inspire more love in the world. From that melting pot of travel and exploration, dream-state thoughts and grounding realization, ‘Causing Love’ was born”.
Building an enviable reputation for herself within the industry, RAIGN’s music has featured on soundtracks for The Vampire Diaries, America’s Got Talent and The 100, with her single “Knocking On Heaven’s Door” collecting an Entertainment Weekly Award for ‘Best Use Of Music In A TV Finale (The 100). RAIGN is also a multi platinum songwriter, having penned tracks for the likes of Rita Ora, Tulisa, David Guetta and Jesse McCartney.
Seamlessly marrying the ornate grandeur of classical music and the electronic elements of EDM in a uniquely affecting manner, RAIGN is set to re-release her career-defining 2018 album in the form of a 21-track collection titled SIGN From Above at the end of October.
Surpassing expectations and celebrating individuality, with “Causing Love” RAIGN transcends and inspires – establishing herself as a front-runner in the next wave of boundary-pushing pop.
