Jordan Rakei collaborates with Common on new version of 'Signs'

Following on from the release of his stunning new album 'Origin' last year, Jordan Rakei has now returned to deliver a very special collaboration.

The new version of 'Signs', which originally appeared on his previous full-length, now features US rapper Common, and will be included on the deluxe edition of 'Origin', which is expected to be released on the 13th March via Ninja Tune.

Speaking about their collaboration together, Common said, “I am very grateful to be a part of it. When I heard the song, I was inspired and I thought it was something that I could be my creative self on. I really appreciate Jordan as an artist and I am excited to be collaborating with him.”

While Jordan added, “I'm so honoured to have a track with Common. It's insanely humbling to know that one of my favourite rappers of all time liked one of my tracks and decided to be a part of it! We had a conversation when I was in America on tour and he understood the track’s meaning from the get go. I remember walking to high school when I was about 13 and rinsing his albums “Be” and “Electric Circus”. It feels very surreal to say we now share a piece of music together!”
