Listen: Nina Nesbitt releases new single and announces UK tour

Edinburgh singer-songwriter Nina Nesbitt has released new single Somebody Special – as well as announcing a string of UK tour dates for May, including a hometown gig at Liquid Room.

You can listen to Somebody Special – and check out Nina’s full tour dates – below.

“Somebody Special is about when you’ve been feeling a bit low and then you meet this person who changes everything,” says the former Balerno High school pupil. “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 enjoyed a whirlwind of success with the Peroxide album, but she was soon ready to move on.

An organic evolution, her 2016 track Chewing Gum was the sound of her breaking out of her comfort zone and indulging fully her love of pop. Her desire to challenge herself continued with the low-key Life In Colour EP which found Nina writing emotional and sometimes dark stories that were inspired by experiences which fans had sent to her.

Still only 23-years-old, Nina 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.
