Toronto, ON — February 2, 2018 — Today, RHYE released their highly-anticipated sophomore album BLOOD via Last Gang Records. BLOOD is available digitally and physically starting today here. Limited edition vinyl bundles are available exclusively via the RHYE Shop.

RHYE today also shared a new music video for track, Count To Five. Inspired by dance videos posted in response to the band’s music video for Taste, frontman Milosh cast dancers and recruited local filmmakers from around the globe via Instagram to create the clip’s individual shots. Directed by Milosh, the stunning clip was filmed in Berlin, Tokyo, Moscow, Ghana, Joshua Tree National Park, and Los Angeles. Watch the music video here.

"Shot in 6 different locations around the world, the video for Count to Five celebrates personal expression through the universal language of music and dance,” shared Milosh. “We invited each dancer to film in her home environment to honor her own individual experience.”

The music video for Count To Five was created in collaboration with @georginaleomelody (Berlin), @hfmtoyko and @momocarenri (Tokyo), @dkainmil and @tanyaermolenco (Moscow), @sire_choppenson and @dolly__dove (Ghana), @erinsmurray (Joshua Tree), and @jjaylene (Los Angeles). 

BLOOD follows RHYE’s debut album, Woman, which was released in 2013 to wide acclaim. Critics were quick to praise BLOODs previously released songs as “reserved, understated, and brilliant” (NPR Music), “busy but not cluttered, sexy but not serious” (Pitchfork), “soul pop that hits all the high notes” (Wall Street Journal), “delicate, sensuous” (Stereogum), “music to fall in love to” (Uproxx), and “mood music” (Exclaim!). Sonically, the album is reflective of the band’s evolving live show. 

Earlier this week, RHYE kicked off a tour that will visit cities across North America, with stops in Montreal and Toronto in March, and Europe going into the spring. Tickets for all dates are available for purchase now. See below for a complete schedule and ticket links.

About Rhye:
A mosaic of emotive piano keys, physical percussion, buzzing analog synths, and expansive vocals, Rhye find humanity in musicality. Driven by this approach, the group quietly transformed into a phenomenon with the arrival of their 2013 debut, Woman. The record garnered acclaim from Rolling Stone, Spin, and Pitchfork who dubbed it Best New Album. Open would concurrently accumulate over 44.5 million Spotify streams, while The Fall surpassed 24.7 million. Along the way, they sold out theatres around the globe between standout festival sets at Coachella, Pitchfork, and a highlight concert in Denmark accompanied by a 49-piece all-girls choir. As the band began writing in 2016, this expansive live show indelibly impacted their second full-length album in 2017. The first single, Please, siphons a gorgeous vocal plea through a kaleidoscope of sparse percussion and piano that’s simultaneously stirring, stark, and sensual. It’s a new musical experience. It’s Rhye.
