Corinne Bailey Rae is the debut studio album by English singer-songwriter Corinne Bailey Rae, released on 24 February 2006 by EMI. It debuted at number one on the UK Albums Chart and was certified triple platinum by the British Phonographic Industry (BPI). Four singles were released from the album: "Like a Star", "Put Your Records On", "Trouble Sleeping" and "I'd Like To". Corinne Bailey Rae has sold over four million copies worldwide.

Release and promotion[edit]

"Like a Star" was released as the album's lead single in a limited-edition format in 2005, peaking at number thirty-four on the UK Singles Chart. When re-released in October 2006, "Like a Star" reached a new peak position of number thirty-two on the UK chart. The second single, "Put Your Records On", went straight to number two in February 2006. The follow-up single, "Trouble Sleeping", was released in May 2006, peaking at number forty in the UK.

"I'd Like To" was released on 12 February 2007 as the fourth and final single. On the same day, the album was re-released with a bonus disc containing a few of the B-sides and remixes included on previous singles, as well as three new tracks—one of which, a cover of Björk's 1993 song "Venus as a Boy", only previously appeared on a covermount for Q magazine. Several songs from the album appear in the 2006 comedy-drama film Venus starring Peter O'Toole. In the United States, "Breathless" was released as a promotional single in 2007.

At Metacritic, which assigns a weighted mean rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream critics, the album received an average score of 69, based on 13 reviews.[17] While some critics perceived filler as a weakness of the album, Rae earned positive comparisons to female recording artists such as Billie Holiday, Norah Jones, Erykah Badu, Minnie Riperton, and Macy Gray.[12][16][18][21][22] David Jeffries of AllMusic called it "pleasingly homegrown, warm, and poignant in parts".[11] Los Angeles Times writer Natalie Nichols compared Rae's music to that of Sade and Stevie Wonder.[14]
