Waves is the new album from multi-platinum, award winning pop star Rachel Platten. Waves is the follow up to Rachel s Gold-certified major label debut album Wildfire, which was released in January of 2016.
Rachel spent most of 2017 writing and recording Waves in Los Angeles, working with top songwriters and producers including Ryan Tedder, Stargate, Jason Evigan, Ian Kirkpatrick, Nate Cyphert and Jon Levine. The majority of the album was recorded at the famed Village Studios in Los Angeles and all 13 tracks were co-written by Rachel. Describing the process of making Waves, Rachel shares: "I loved making this album, I've never felt so free creatively. I wrote all of these songs without getting in the way, and I just let whatever needed to come through me just come. I worked out a lot of heavy stuff on some of the songs and cried on my piano at 3 a.m. some nights, but I also woke up some days and jumped into the ocean and felt amazing and just wanted to write songs I could dance to. This album is raw and it's emotional, but it's also fun and sweet and it's real. It's honestly just all of me and I am so damn proud of it."
The first song and video released from the Waves album was "Broken Glass," a track TIME raved is "another sharply produced pop jam," and USA Today hailed as "a shimmering dance track." That song was followed is "Perfect For You" a brightly honest yet hopeful track Rachel wrote about every day insecurities she still faces. Waves is a collection of emotive and reflective pop songs, all presented in Rachel Platten's uniquely inspired way.
Rachel Platten jumped onto the global stage following the success of "Fight Song," a song that touched millions of people around the world with its empowering and resilient message of never giving up. "Fight Song" is certified 3x Platinum and has gone on to sell more than four million downloads worldwide; the single topped countless charts around the globe before being succeeded by Rachel's Platinum certified hit, "Stand by You." The singer has won several awards, including the 2016 Daytime EMMY Awards for Outstanding Musical Performance in a Talk Show/Morning Program for her television debut performance of "Fight Song" on "Good Morning America."
