Corinne Bailey Rae's Death Tracks

Corinne Bailey Rae's new album is a "dark" collection of tracks about death.

The 'Like a Star' singer says her forthcoming songs have been overshadowed by the loss of her husband, musician Jason Rae, who died from an accidental methadone and alcohol overdose in March 2008.

She said: "I don't know if there was something in the air or what, but the songs seemed different, a bit darker. With 'The Sea', I was just thinking about loss, about the impact losing your father would have on you as a child, how one event that big could colour your life, bleed into everything else and force you into a certain shape."

Another track important to the 30-year-old singer is 'I'd Do it All Again', which she wrote two months before Jason's death, as a testimony of her love for him.

She explained to Observer Music Monthly magazine: "It was written literally just after me and Jason had this massive disagreement, a big argument, a bad one. Almost as he was leaving the room, I just sat down and wrote it. It's just about how I felt about him at that time. Even right in the middle of the worst times, I remember thinking that I would choose this exact life again, that I would do it all again. It was me saying, I'm not wishing myself out of this situation. I'm 100 percent committed to this person. I don't have any regrets about this relationship even though there are all these difficult times."
