Edinburgh-born pop princess Nina Nesbitt has just unveiled new single Chewing Gum – and you can watch the video right here.
Another piece of pop perfection from the singer, Chewing Gum is taken from Nina’s eagerly-awaited Modern Love EP, which is due to be released on February 5 via Island Records, and sees the 21-year-old reinvented as a sleek, synth-pop diva.
The Modern Love EP is a big departure from the music a teenage Nina wrote for her 2014 album Peroxide.
Upon its release in February 2014, Peroxide hit the mid weeks at No.1, charting at No.11 in the UK and No.1 in Scotland.
Top 40 singles Stay Out and Way In The World were both playlisted by Radio 1 and helped take Nina’s total combined YouTube and VEVO views to over 30 million.
“It’s a big departure from the 17-year-old girl with an acoustic guitar but it feels like the most honest music I’ve written,” says Nina. “I’ve been left alone to do whatever I want without anyone breathing down my neck saying, ‘that’s not you’, or trying to water it down.
“I’ve spent the past two years living with friends in London and sonically documenting it.”
Nina, who co-produced her debut album with Jake Gosling (Paloma Faith, Ed Sheeran, One Direction), while working very closely with Iain Archer (Jake Bugg) now has her own home studio set-up.
“It’s called Niightwatch studios,” she says, “because I usually start around midnight, when everything is quiet.”
She takes production credit for EP track Masquerade. Other credits go to Dan Lancaster (Bring Me The Horizon) for Chewing Gum and Fred Ball (Rihanna) for Take You To Heaven.
