However, despite her album being named Phoenix, she doesnt see herself as rising up from the ashes.

Im not exactly rising from the ashes, but its like the re-living of something. I feel like Ive lived this life before in my dreams, she continued.

Ritas last album, Ora, came out way back in 2012.

However, a string of setbacks, including changing her record label from Roc Nation to Atlantic, and a rumoured disagreement with ex-boyfriend Calvin Harris over songs they had worked on together, saw her second record constantly pushed back.

But the I Will Never Let You Down singer vowed she doesnt feel too much pressure with Phoenix, she just wants to release it.

Theres a bit of pressure but at the same time, Im happy its going to come out. At some point youve got to let go. Let the vibe go, she added.

Its the story of my rollercoaster journey. Im just happy to express myself creatively.
