Nadine Shah has shared a video for ‘Holiday Destination’ - the title track from her upcoming third album.
Nadine describes her inspiration for the song as “a response to this really harrowing news piece about migrants and refugees arriving on the shores of Kos in Greece by the thousands. There were some holidaymakers being interviewed and they were talking about how the situation was ruining their holiday. Despite their total and complete lack of empathy the thing which shocked me most was their bold and unashamed stance of saying such things on national television. This is what we’re seeing across the globe: people proudly expressing this hate fuelled rhetoric. It’s like, wow – some people really don’t care and they’ll happily talk about how they don’t care. I just don’t get it.”
She heads out on a headline tour this October, beginning in her native North-East, and finishing at Brighton’s Concorde 2, with support coming from Hull faves LIFE.

Taken from her recent album, ‘Kitchen Sink’.
Game-changing LP ‘Holiday Destination’ positioned her as a voice to soundtrack a politically turbulent era. Now, she’s turning her eye on her own life and proving that she’s a pretty funny fucker too.
Both playful and powerful in its delivery.
