Rumer's third studio album, "Into Colour", continues a personal path which already sounded like something out of a romantic novel. The world swooned at her smoky, soothing tones, compared to those of Karen Carpenter, and the classic arrangements across 2010 debut, "Seasons Of My Soul?"; where every song, as The Guardian put it, already sounded "like a standard". Having sold over a million copies worldwide, "Seasons?" won the singer a Mojo Award, Brit nominations, and the support of such prominent musical figures as Burt Bacharach, Elton John and even Richard Carpenter himself, who wrote to offer her his ?"congratulations?" for creating something ?"actually musical, which has been in short supply in recent years." Having harnessed everything from two army boot camps to horse whisperer healing in the attempt at getting better, Rumer?'s third album began in earnest in what is deemed to be a kind of "musical mecca?": she journeyed to Lauren Canyon. Here Rumer rented a trailer backed onto the tumbledown Spanish villa of an unconventional family of four, belonging to a child-actor-turned-inventor, his film producer wife, their children, two pot-bellied pigs, a cat, a dog and a snake. This unusual environment was to have parallels with former safe havens in Rumer's life (her childhood in Pakistan, the period living in a commune). There, she reconnected with composer and producer, Rob Shirakbari, the long time musical director and arranger to Burt Bacharach and Dionne Warwick. Rumer and Rob began collaborating, sketching in the songs that would eventually form her creative and emotional breakthrough. The resulting album, ?"Into Colour?", is the Rumer you first fell for, but in a mood you may have not heard her in previously. Musically, it?'s more upbeat, sensual and hopeful, expanding the laid-back Bacharach sound to further incorporate elements of 70s Philly grooves (Thom Bell, Hall & Oates), Soul (Curtis Mayfield, Marvin Gaye) and even Disco. ?"Into Colour?" was recorded between Arkansas, New Jersey and London's legendary RAK Studios. Most of the rhythm section was performed live by members of Daryl Hall?'s band. Rumer and Daryl met when collaborating on cult American TV show ?Live from Daryl?'s House ?and also includes three co-write with "Boys Don?'t Cry?" songwriter Stephen Bishop (known for his 70s hit ?"On And On?", and the Tootsie theme ?"It Might Be You?"). And whilst there?'s a more sensual, fevered feel throughout, the night-time vibe - in a first for Rumer ?actually begins on the dance-floor. First single ?"Dangerous" is a thrilling, once-bitten-twice-shy disco number, as inspired by The Bee Gees as it was Rumer?'s fear of re-entering music again, having only just put her life back together. "The sheer prospect just felt dangerous to me. I had so much resistance to going back into writing and performing publicly again that I realized I wasn?'t going to be able to break through it until I literally wrote a song about the resistance itself. We worked it into a love song, and the emotion just felt naturally Disco in theme.?" Laidback, soulful and with a silver lining, ?"Into Colour?" is ultimately the journey from where Rumer was "lonely, burnt out and lost" to where she is now (and every shade in between). ?"When I imagined ?"Into Colour?", I didn't know what it was, but it felt like a hopeful place to walk towards. In this record you can hear me picking through the debris, and going through each emotion. I?'ve come out of it with a lot more compassion: for others people?'s suffering, and also gratitude for the compassion and friendship other people have shown me.?"
