One of the UK’s most exciting rising stars and dance-pop icon in waiting Rose Gray has shared her brand new single ‘Sun Comes Up’along with the announcement of her new EP Higher Than The Sun, due February 1st.Featuring production collaborations with Alex Metric, Ghostculture, Frank Colucci and Nick Godmode, the new EP continues Rose’s upward streak creating some of the UK’s best dance-pop in recent memory. She describes Higher Than The Sun as“the big sister to my previous EP Synchronicity, only maybe a little more fun. I wrote this EP over summer 2022 – I think the London heatwave, festivals, and nightlife blossoming has something to do with this EP feeling so free and intoxicating. There’s rave, disco and techno pulsating through Higher Than The Sun”. 

Rose’s Higher Than The Sun EP will include previous single ‘Promise Me’, and recent track and FIFA 2023 soundtrack song ‘Prettier Than You’. It follows her acclaimed summer EP Synchronicity, which featured previous singles ‘Last Song’, which premiered on Clara Amfo’s show on BBC Radio 1, title track ‘Synchronicity’, which received its premiere on The FADER, and Clara Amfo’s Hottest Record in the World ‘Cupid’. Rose is signed to Play It Again Sam, home to Lykke Li, Anna of the North and Soulwax, and recently was signed to Facet Records and Publishing by Justin Tranter (songwriter on Dua Lipa’s Future Nostalgia, Lady Gaga’s Chromatica, and Selena Gomez’s Rare).

Speaking about new track ‘Sun Comes Up’, out now, Rose says, “It’s a little moody, a little ethereal, with a heavy breakbeat and live strings. It’s a side of what I do which I’m excited to showcase on this EP. I wrote this on an emo day. I can’t always be banging out 130bmp+s – sometimes I’m just sad.”

Rose Gray made a huge splash with her debut mixtape dancing, drinking, talking, thinking, which included Clara Amfo’s BBC Radio 1 Tune of The Week ‘Save Your Tears’, as well as Rose’s cover of Saint Etienne’s ‘Nothing Can Stop Us’, and her breakout single ‘Same Cloud’. Drawing attention from the likes of NME, i-D, DIY, Billboard, Wonderland, and Notion, as well as Clara and Annie Mac at BBC Radio 1, and BBC Introducing, dancing, drinking, talking, thinking was a true statement of intent from a big new voice in British pop. Since then, Rose has released Synchronicity, which won more attention from The Face, The FADER, The Guardian and more. 

Born and raised in East London, Walthamstow, the city has always been the singer-songwriter’s playground: warehouse parties in secret locations, the suspended reality of the late-night underground and the first glimpse of sunrise in the small hours are woven into the fabric of Rose Gray’s sound. Originally drawn to big popstars with big voices such as Christina Aguilera, Rose has now created her own sonic landscape – a hedonistic, intoxicating blend of house, pop and dance that feels entirely unique, and totally irresistible. Keep your eyes peeled for more from Rose this year.
