It’s been a while since we’ve heard new music from Rita Ora. And now, the English singer is back with a new song, How to Be Lonely, written by singer-songwriter Lewis Capaldi.
The 29-year-old singer kicked off her week by promoting her new single, which was released last Friday.

On Monday, she was spotted showing off her bizarre style while arriving at the BBC Studios in London. She wore a Gothic outfit, which included a black leather jacket with orange panels and brown sleeves and collar.
The English singer-songwriter styled her jacket with black rib-knit pants, which feature a cutout detail on the thighs and a white waist tie belt. Rita also wore a skintight jumpsuit in two-tone glittery beige and flesh colors underneath her jacket and pants.

To amp up the quirky vibe of her look, Rita applied blue eyeshadow, which she hid behind her ombre sunglasses. The 29-year-old artist wore nude lipstick and a flush of peachy shade on her cheeks, while her blonde hair was styled in voluminous curls.

Last week, Rita Ora looked hot in head-to-toe white as she headed to Capital FM to promote her single.
Known for her edgy style, Rita donned a white utilitarian outfit from Symonds Pearmain’s Spring/Summer 2020 collection. It included a satin-lined waxed-cotton jacket that features a high ruffled neck, which she opted to wear down. It also has detachable sleeves, press stud buttons, and a ruched elasticated belt to highlight the waist.
She teamed her jacket with matching trousers, cut from mid-weight cotton twill. They are styled with utilitarian pockets, folded hems, and elasticated gathered belt with snap buttons.

Speaking about her new single on the Capital Breakfast with Roman Kemp, Rita said that she finds it liberating being by herself.
“Basically what I love about this song, was that I heard it and it was like midway through I guess, you know, breaking up… and I kind just was like, you know what ‘I don’t know why we always put this thing on ourselves of like, oh no we can’t be by ourselves and it’s so hard to be alone’ and all that stuff.”
She added: “I just thought sometimes it’s actually really cool and really liberating and I’ve been going through a phase where I’ve been really good at being by myself and like having baths on a Saturday and getting a massage and being OK and being content. And I don’t think it’s something to shy away from, and I actually think it’s a beautiful thing because it makes you a better person and I don’t feel like people talk about it enough.”
“So when I heard it, I thought ‘wow Lewis, you really touched a nerve,’ especially for me, so I hope when people listen to it, it touches them too.”
She also highlighted the importance of self-love, saying: “I actually think it’s a beautiful thing because it makes you a better person.”
