Nina Nesbitt shares her new single “Colder” ahead of her new album next year.
Currently on a 24-date tour with Lewis Capaldi, Nina Nesbitt recently announced a headline tour for April 2019 and today shares her new single “Colder” through Cooking Vinyl. The UK tour kicks off on 8th April in Bristol and concludes at the Islington Assembly Hall in London on 17th April 2019.
The release of single “Colder” comes hot on the heels of “Loyal To Me” which saw Nina secure both Radio 1 and 2 playlists and projected her streams to over 120 million. Produced by Fraser T Smith (Stormzy/ Adele/Drake/Florence and the Machine).
Nina explains; “Colder was the last song I wrote for the album. It was written after watching young kids in love and how fearlessly they fall for each other because they’ve most likely not had their heart broken before. It’s a song about the aftermath of that and explaining to someone why you find it hard to open up”.
“Colder” comes ahead of the eagerly awaited second album, “The Sun Will Come Up, The Seasons Will Change” out on 1st February 2019, which showcases Nina at her lyrical and musical best. Nina’s new album will feature production from Lostboy (Anne-Marie), Fraser T Smith (Adele, Drake, Gorillaz, Florence and the Machine), Jordan Riley (Macklemore, Zara Larsson) and Nina herself; the album has been three years in the making and bears no hint of compromise as Nina demonstrates her unique talent for acute lyrical observations and ear-worm melodies. Heralding a musical change of direction from Nina with more obvious pop influences, the album is a scintillating journey through a whole range of genres and moods.
Album highlights include the multi-layered, story-telling “The Moments I’m Missing” which was written and produced in Nina’s bedroom; the R&B tinged “The Best You Had” which was embraced by Hollywood royalty in the shape of Chloë Grace Moretz and Taylor Swift; and “Somebody Special”, a love song with a twist – these tracks alone have had over 121 million streams on Spotify! Further highlights are pop classics like “Loyal To Me” and the more heartfelt ballads like the empowering “Empire” and “Is It Really Me You’re Missing?” (the song which was put on hold for Rihanna), which fully showcases Nina’s glorious voice.
Nina’s reach globally has also been illustrated by the reports of both Spotify and Apple promoting her single in New York’s Times Square on huge billboards and the fact her writing credits now include The Shires, Jessie Ware, Matoma, Olivia Holt, Sigala and more. “Loyal To Me” is also having huge global success at radio including being Top 10 most added song at US Top 40 Radio and daytime playlisting at Radio Nova in Australia. On top of all of this, Nina has also featured on tracks with other artists, notably “Somebody” with Sigala & HRVY, plus a collaboration with Jonas Blue on “Desperate”, demonstrating how far she has come as an artist and writer.
In a music industry that often doesn’t give you second chances, or time to settle into the artist you want to be, “The Sun Will Come Up, The Seasons Will Change” shows that Nina’s hard work has been rewarded. Her 2019 is only going to get even bigger and better. Her UK tour kicks off on 8th April in Bristol and concludes at the Islington Assembly Hall in London on 17th April 2019.
