Written in Nashville “Somebody Special” premiered earlier this month as a World First on Zane Lowe’s Beats1 radio show, and is a love song with a twist. “’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.” The Scottish artist also co-created the concept for the video and added her own further twist on the lyrics. “I think everyone wants to feel good about themselves”, Nina explains “but when you’re with somebody that is emotionally abusive it can really wear you down, so I wanted to show that moment where she realizes that she deserves more and finally takes control of the situation”.
“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 “Favorite Songs Playlist” on her Apple Music. Currently, these two tracks alone count for over 30 million of her 90 million streams to date, and that number continues to grow week by week and on a global scale.
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 Spring supporting both Jake Bugg and Clean Bandit. She is also set to make appearances at this years SXSW Festival in March. For tickets and more information, go to: www.ninanesbittmusic.com
