Bonafide global superstar RAYE has announced a world tour and drops the brand-new video to ‘Flip A Switch.’.

Fresh from a string of live dates with Kali Uchis in the USA and now supporting SZA on her sold out ‘S.O.S’ Arena Tour across Europe/the UK – RAYE announces dates spanning North America, Europe, the UK and Australia.

Alongside the UK and European dates, RAYE’s return to North America is set to include 26 dates taking in Washington, New York City, Chicago, Toronto, Atlanta, Nashville and more before wrapping in Los Angeles.

The tour will then visit Melbourne and Sydney Australia in February 2024.

Riding high from the success of her UK No.1 hit “Escapism.”, “Flip A Switch.” is on the A List at BBC Radio 1, has already entered the UK Official Charts and launched this week as the third most added track at US Rhythmic radio.

Joining RAYE as direct support on tour throughout the US, Europe, and the UK is the singer, songwriter, and performer Absolutely who has officially arrived as a solo artist with her genre-smashing single “Higher”—out now via Epic Records. Listen HERE and watch the video HERE. Working with frequent collaborator and producer Dave Hamelin [Beyoncé, 070 Shake], Absolutely fully embodies “alternative” in the truest sense of the word as her dynamic voice shines on soundscapes laced with otherworldly R&B, interstellar soul, and boundary-busting pop. Her inclusion makes this jaunt a family affair as she’s also RAYE’s younger sister. But make no mistake – Absolutely is a visionary artist in her own right and her debut on the stage supporting her sister will be a special moment.

RAYE has also been appointed as an ambassador for Dyson, a leading innovator of cutting-edge technology. In an exciting collaboration, RAYE incorporates Dyson’s latest innovation, the Dyson Zone™ headphones with air purification, into the 'Flip A Switch.' video. As a Dyson Zone™ Ambassador, RAYE will also collaborate on various creative projects, showcasing Dyson's innovative new audio technology.

The success surrounding RAYE’s return to music has been exponential as she continues to break records with her debut album, My 21st Century Blues, a decade in the making and her first as an independent artist. On her own terms, RAYE gave space for listeners who have faced and overcome adversity with anthems for women in the industry that recounted her own painful experiences with sexual abuse, rape, body dysmorphia, addiction, misogyny, and even climate change.

"Escapism." (feat. 070 Shake) catapulted to viral TikTok fame amassing over 1.4 million original creations and 825 million cumulative streams. Recently winning an Ivor Novello Award for Best Contemporary Song and Best Social Trending Song at The Global Awards, the UK No. 1 single and bonafide global smash has been certified RIAA Platinum in the US plus nine other territories and marked her debut on the Billboard Hot 100 chart where it peaked at #22.

Globally, RAYE’s season of television performances includes The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Later… with Jools Holland, and The Graham Norton Show in addition to riveting performances on NPR’s Tiny Desk and the BBC1 Live Lounge; magazine covers across Cosmopolitan, Bricks, Euphoria, NYLON, Wonderland, Forbes’ 30 Under 30, Time Out; countless features internationally with highlights across The New York Times, Rolling Stone, Billboard, Pitchfork, V Magazine, W Magazine, The Cut, The Daily Telegraph, The Independent; and features in SKIMS New Shapewear collection alongside PinkPantheress, Ice Spice and Nessa Barrett plus international billboards for Spotify’s EQUAL campaign.

Fast cementing a legacy as an artist that can skip between genres at will – songs that flit between hip-hop, dance, and gospel and still keep their integrity – RAYE continues to own the pop game.
