Nadine Shah announces new album ‘Holiday Destination’

She’s also revealed first track ‘Out The Way’ and announced a UK tour!

A couple of years after the release of her last album ‘Fast Food,’ South Shields singer-songwriter Nadine Shah has revealed her new album will be out on 25th August! ‘Holiday Destination,’ released on 1965 Records, will see Nadine shifting from a personal perspective and looking outwards to the wider world, putting in to perspective how the uncertainty, political upheaval and often xenophobic rhetoric of recent times has been a part of her own life for many years. See the tracklisting below. 1. Place Like This 2. Holiday Destination 3. 2016 4. Out The Way 5. Yes Men 6. Evil 7. Ordinary 8. Relief 9. Mother Fighter 10. Jolly Sailor Nadine has also shared the lead single from the new album, ‘Out The Way,’ a biting commentary on her coming to grips with her identity being called into question despite being a second-generation immigrant and British national. In a statement, Nadine explained how the rise of nationalism has deeply affected her personally: “Even on Twitter I’ve had people telling me ‘oh, go back to where you’ve come from’ - and I’m like what? South Shields? It’s a proper identity crisis for me. I’m a second-generation immigrant - I was born in England, I’m very English - proper fucking English, mate!” she jokes, before adding “but I’m also culturally Muslim.” She’ll also be taking ‘Holiday Destination’ on tour around the UK later in the year. As well as playing at London’s Citadel Festival and End of the Road, she’ll hit the road in October. Listen to ‘Out The Way’ and see Nadine’s upcoming UK tour dates below.
