Rita Ora's first album in six years, Phoenix, will feature Avicii, Alesso, Cardi B, Rudimental and more

You can't quite call this a comeback since Rita Ora never really went away – but you can think of it as a re-statement of intent. The British pop star has announced that she will indeed succeed her Platinum-clinching 2012 debut album Ora with a second album. An official release from Sony Music Entertainment Singapore revealed that the long-in-works project will be christened Phoenix.

Due for global release on November 23, the record features contributions from A-listers across the pop cultural spectrum such as EDM giants Avicii and Alesso, neo-R&B savants Benny Blanco and Cashmere Cat, drum and bass icons Rudimental, pop lightning rods Charli XCXLiam Payne and Bebe Rexha and of-the-moment rapper Cardi B.

"This album is a true labour of love, and it was important for me to do it my way", Ora said of the record by way of the release, adding that it'll be "both challenging and euphoric at times".
