FRESH: ‘The Sun Will Come Up, The Seasons Will Change and The Flowers Will Fall’ – Nina Nesbitt

Nina Nesbitt reissues her second studio album in expanded form as “The Sun Will Come Up, The Seasons Will Change and The Flowers Will Fall”.

by Christopher Smith

The eagerly awaited second album from Scottish singer-songwriter Nina Nesbitt has arrived! “The Sun Will Come Up, The Seasons Will Change” is out today through Cooking Vinyl. Having obtained over 160 million streams between singles since signing her new deal with Cooking Vinyl and peaking at over 10 million monthly Spotify listeners, the new album shows Nina at her lyrical and musical best.

Today, Nina also shares the incredible beautifully shot video for her new single – the song which was put on hold for Rihanna – “Is It Really Me You’re Missing?”. Directed by Debbie Scanlon and filmed in frozen Eidsvoll, Norway, the video is Nina’s best yet, telling the dark fairytale of a woman who waits for a man who never comes. When she realises that she could be anyone to him, she cuts off her long hair and is reborn as the Pink Lotus.

The Nina of 2019 is not the Nina of 2013, in her own words “I’ve grown up”. 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 which has had over 30 million streams on Spotify alone. Further highlights are pop classics like the Radio 1 and 2 playlisted single “Loyal To Me“, plus empowering tracks like the stand out “Empire”.

The album features production from Lostboy (Anne-Marie), Fraser T Smith (Adele, Drake, Gorillaz, Florence and the Machine), Jordan Riley (Macklemore, Zara Larsson) and Nina herself. “I’m so proud of this album”, she says. “This is the album I always wanted to make on my own terms. It’s an honest account of somebody in their early ’20s, giving a real window into their often ever-changing life”. It’s been non-stop for Nina since signing to Cooking Vinyl, including a tour of the US with Jake Bugg, a UK tour with Lewis Capaldi, another sold-out UK headline tour, and winning the Evolution Award at the SSE Scottish Music Awards. She was also asked to collaborate with emerging female artists Sasha Sloan and Charlotte Lawrence on a new track “Psychopath” for the launch of Spotify’s Louder Together – Nina being the only UK artist to take part.

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, Jonas Blue and more. 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, 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.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
