Rae is donating all of her profits from the sale of the song to Cruz Roja Mexicana (Mexican Red Cross).

Nocturnal Tapes – All I Need
Wow, Nocturnal Tapes have arrived and aren’t we happy they have!
Their new single ‘All I Need’ takes you on a spacial journey of floaty dreamscapes and psychedelia attitudes. It is about that moment when you realise you have everything you need and suddenly the pressure you’ve been putting on yourself can lift.
