Following the announcement of her upcoming North American tour with Jake Bugg this spring, Nina Nesbitt has released yet another incredible self-penned and produced pop gem, titled “Somebody Special.” The track premiered today as a World First by Zane Lowe on his Beats1 radio show and is available worldwide now on all digital platforms. LISTEN
“Somebody Special” follows two incredible releases from Nina in 2017; ‘The Best You Had’ and ‘The Moments I’m Missing’, all demonstrating her undeniable knack for modernist pop and R&B which she blends with her own confessional song-writing. Fans include Chloë Grace Moretz and Taylor Swift, who included ‘The Best You Had’ on her “Favourite Songs Playlist” on her Apple Music. Currently, Nina is sitting on an impressive 25 million combined streams for both songs and that number continues to grow week by week and on a global scale.
Written in Nashville“Somebody Special” is a love song with a twist – it’s about a relationship which inspires someone to rediscover their own self-worth and potential. It sounds like a global smash: all slowly percolating verses, taut rhythmic grooves and a chorus you want to live inside.
“Somebody Special is about when you’ve been feeling a bit low and then you meet this person who changes everything,” explains Nina.“It’s about those first few months where everything you do together feels so exciting. You could be sitting in a dive bar drinking cheap cider, driving about in a broken down car, or sitting at home in your tracksuit, but you somehow feel like you’re having the best time because the feeling of falling in love sugar coats everything.”
Having grown-up in a small village just outside Edinburgh, Nina Nesbitt has found a way to make it work for her in an industry that often doesn’t give you the time to settle into the artist you want to be. Rather than rush into making another album for the sake of it, she waited for the inspiration to strike and let it slowly take shape organically. What she excels at is being an artist, but one that’s fully in control – the very best kind. Nina’s new album will be released in Summer 2018.
Late October Nina made a welcomed visit to Los Angeles and New York City where she played sold out shows in both cities.
Nina Nesbitt will be returning to North American shores this March and April supporting Jake Bugg. For tickets and more information, go to: http://www.ninanesbittmusic.com
