Kate Nash has shared a new video for her latest single ‘Call Me’. Filmed in Michael Sobell Hospice - a centre in Northwood, London which cares for local people facing life-limiting illnesses - it’s a celebration of the NHS and community spirit.
“This is a hospice where my mum works,” Kate Nash explained in a press release. “My mum has been a nurse for over 40 years and is the most hardworking & caring, practical, no bullshit, magic woman in the world! The NHS is so important and we need to support it.”
“The hospice is also where a very special friend of mine died. The song ‘Mermaid Blue’ [a bonus track from 2013 album ‘Girl Talk’] is about her]. A hospice is a beautiful place full of light, quality services and care. We need to change how we view these amazing safe spaces. We all need to work on our relationship with death and with how we see & treat people in chronic pain or with life limiting illness.
“We’ll all need these services one day and it is a beautiful thing to care for one another. Kindness, mindfulness & spiritual growth is punk rock.”
Kate Nash is currently on tour to mark the ten year anniversary of her 2007 album ‘Made of Bricks’
