Rising R&B star Arin Ray drops surprise new EP

Arin Ray’s new EP, Phases II, is out now on all digital platforms. This second installation of the Cincinnati, OH singer-songwriter’s Phases series is a cavalcade of his more recent body of work, including ‘Change’ with Kehlani, ‘A Seat’ and ‘The Get Down.’

The soulful, five-song set follows Ray’s critically acclaimed major label debut, Platinum Fire, which was released in March 2018. Propelled by the straightforward banger ‘We Ain’t Homies,’ and guest appearances from YG, Ty Dolla $ign, DRAM, SIR, Babyface and more, that project promptly cemented Ray as one of the most refreshing young voices in R&B.

Ray is an accomplished writer whose craftsmanship can be heard on a variety of contemporary works from Chris Brown to Nicki Minaj. Phases II is a seamless continuation of the 24-year-old crooner’s audacious chronicle from boy to man. Early next year, he will unveil a music video for the grown and sexy new single, ‘The Get Down,’ which he co-produced with The Rascals and Sir Dylan.

Arin Ray is currently opening for Ari Lennox on the European leg of her Shea Butter Baby Tour. The 12-city excursion kicked off December 2nd in Oslo, Norway, followed by additional dates in Sweden, Germany and Belgium. The holiday season love fest will wrap this week with three, back-to-back, sold out shows in London at Camden’s Electric Ballroom tomorrow, Thursday and Friday.

Phases II is now available worldwide via Interscope Records/Polydor Records.
