News: Nao announces new album ‘Saturn’

Nao announces new album ‘Saturn’

She’s also confirmed a UK tour & Ireland tour!

After releasing new track ‘Make It Out Alive’Nao has confirmed details of her second album!

The album - called ‘Saturn’ - will be released on 26th October and will feature previous singles ‘Make It Out Alive’ and ‘Another Lifetime’.

Explaining the concept behind the album’s title, Nao said: “My friends kept telling me about the term ‘Saturn Returns’. It’s this idea that Saturn takes 29 years to orbit from when you’re born and it is the planet of blessings and growth. So by the time you’re around 29, between 27 and 32, something big happens in your life. It’s like waking up and coming of age, like: ‘I’ve been going through my twenties and what have I been doing in this relationship?’ What have I been doing in this job?’ You start to rethink everything - old stuff that your parents taught you or ideas that you believed in. It’s like a complete shedding of skin and it can be painful.”

Along with the announcement of ‘Saturn’, she’s also announced a UK tour for March next year. Tickets will go on sale at 10am on 14th September.
