Video: Closer By Corinne Bailey Rae

Corrine Bailey Rae has released the video for her second single “Closer,” taken from her critically acclaimed album “The Sea.” The song was originally released back in January but failed to chart in the U.S. as well as Corrine’s native U.K. Corrine eventually moved on to her next single “Paris Nights/New York Morning,” but after it failed to chart as well it seems Corrine and her label decided to revisit “Closer” and it give it further promotion. The new video was directed by Adria Petty and in true Corrine style, it is all about simplicity.


  1. Definitely one of my favorite cuts off her latest record. Go Corinne! This is quite lovely.


  2. Grown and Sexy! Video has a classy retro look that recalls Diana Ross or Phyllis Hyman (sp?).

    I am a sucker for rollerskates and disco balls. If it was more uptempo I would be looking for a strobe light. LOL

    Don’t own her music. Must put her on my list.

  3. OK watched it once more. Musically makes me think of Minnie Ripperton. Corinne doesn’t sound like anybody else but her voice exudes that sexy & sweet vibe like Minnie.

    Did I say that I like this song and video!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. I just love everything about her. She is so awesome, I have both of her cds and I truly love them.
    Great vid too.
