Rachel Chinouriri drops new single 'The Hills'

Following on from a string of impactful efforts these last few months, Rachel Chinouriri is back once again with another brand new single.

The new track 'The Hills' was premiered as BBC Radio 1's Hottest Record In The World, and comes accompanied by a stunning new video, directed by Jake Erland.

Speaking about the new offering, she said, “I wrote The Hills about the feeling of not belonging and being out of place. I was in LA having a pretty terrible time. I didn’t feel like I connected with many people musically or in general, and I was stressed out about lots of things in my personal life. I also love being at home, and felt very out of place.

"After a month in LA, I was having my last session and it was going very bad… I was texting Aaron Shadrow in the session… one of the few people I really connected with creatively, we made a plan to leave and he took me to his house and I just told him how I felt. He just started playing the guitar and drums and I started writing about how I felt and in that moment I realised the UK truly is my home.

"Despite how alienated I’ve felt at times because of my race, battles and experiences, in that moment I realised where I enjoyed being was around my friends and loved ones in London. I was writing this in the hills and I felt like no matter how beautiful of a home I was in, in the LA hills, I stuck out like a sore thumb and that was the beginning of the end of this album… a project I started with a song about how I wanted to find my home.”
