Celebrated UK singer/songwriter Rumer is back with her third release INTO COLOUR, out in the US on February 10, 2015 on Atlantic Records.
This is Rumer’s second release of original material, following her million-selling debut SEASONS OF MY SOUL, which won her a Mojo Award, BRIT nominations, and support from the likes of Burt Bacharach, Elton John and Richard Carpenter. Rumer also released the highly praised covers album BOYS DON’T CRY in 2012.
Fans can pre-order INTO COLOUR at all digital retailers and instantly receive the tracks “Dangerous” and “Reach Out” upon order. In addition, the US version of INTO COLOUR features a bonus track called “Frederick Douglass.”

With the critical and commercial success of her first two releases came stress, and with stress came illness. Publicly struggling Bipolar 2 Disorder, Rumer found herself needing to take a break to regroup and heal. She moved to Laurel Canyon where she rented a trailer that was backed onto the tumbledown villa of an unconventional family of four (as well as their two pot-bellied pigs, a cat, a dog and a snake). There, she reconnected with Rob Shirakbari, musical director to Burt Bacharach and Dionne Warwick. Their partnership, professionally and personally, led to the lush beauty and artistry of INTO COLOUR.
Recorded between Arkansas, New Jersey and London’s legendary RAK Studios, INTO COLOUR features the rhythm section of Daryl Hall’s band (Rumer and Hall met when collaborating on ‘Live from Daryl’s House’), and also includes three co-written songs with songwriter Stephen Bishop. Her silky vocals shine over lyrics of love, loss, spirituality and compassion. INTO COLOUR encapsulates her journey, one that is constantly evolving through her music.
INTO COLOUR has already received raves in the UK. Accolades include:
“Melodies that twist on copper-toned notes like falling leaves. A classily crafted record” – Daily Telegraph
“Deeply poignant balladry. Sensational” –The Sunday Times
“Impeccable” – Mail On Sunday
“Memorable songs recorded with exquisite taste” – The Guardian
