[LISTEN] Raileigh Ritchie - Bloodsport


The track ‘Bloodsport’ originally appeared on Raleigh Ritchie’s 2013 EP ‘Black & Blue’ and has since amassed over 4 million streams on Spotify. This new version features additional string arrangements provided by the esteemed Rosie Danvers and Wired Strings, who feature on records by Kanye West, Adele, and many more.

The video for the single, in true Raleigh Ritchie style, tells a story of a man reeling from a breakup; however this man has a plan. Spliced with humour, the heartbroken visual also excludes strength and taps into the songs’ profound message that when in a relationship we should fight against what the world throws at us, as opposed to each other. Acted by the man himself, the video perfectly compliments this addictive track. 

Raleigh Ritchie’s debut album will be released later this year. He will be performing at festivals this summer and on his UK headline tour on the dates below:

October 4th – Manchester Academy
October 5th – King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut, Glasgow
October 7th – The Institute, Digbeth
October 8th – Electric Brixton, London
October 9th – Waterfront, Norwich

Raleigh Ritchie unveils the visual for his new single ‘Bloodsport’, out on September 11th via Columbia Records.
