Fresh off her North American headline tour, Scottish singer-songwriter Nina Nesbitt will be making her late night television debut tonight on CBS’ The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Tune in at 11:35ET/ 10:35PM CT to see Nina perform her hit single ‘The Best You Had.’
In other news, Nina recently surpassed a quarter of a billion combined streams between singles and the release of her new album. ‘The Sun Will Come Up, The Seasons Will Change’ (Cooking Vinyl) features production from Nina Nesbitt herself alongside heavy hitters Lostboy, Fraser T Smith (Adele, Drake, Gorillaz, Florence and the Machine) and Jordan Riley (Macklemore, Zara Larsson); bearing no hint of compromise, Nina demonstrates her unique talent for acute lyrical observations and ear-worm melodies. Heralding a musical change of direction, with Nina evolving from her singer/songwriter past into a more decidedly pop realm. The album is a scintillating journey from start to finish, with Nina brilliantly showcasing her impressive vocal range and knack for writing deeply relatable lyrics.
“I’m so proud of this album,” Nina says. “This is the album I always wanted to make on my own terms. It’s an honest account of somebody in their early ‘20s, giving a real window into their often ever-changing life.” The album chronicles Nesbitt’s early adulthood and life experiences (good and bad), filled with a healthy mix of poignant ballads, like current single ‘Is It Really Me You’re Missing,’ and big and rousing pop moments like ‘Colder,’ and ‘Loyal To Me,’ are instant pop classics. The album starts with ‘Sacred,’ an emotionally-charged opener. Another obvious highlight; the multi-layered, biographical ‘The Moments I’m Missing’ which was written and produced in Nina’s bedroom as well as the R&B tinged ‘The Best You Had’ which was championed by the likes of Chloë Grace Moretz and Taylor Swift. Further highlights include ‘Somebody Special’, a love song with a twist which has had over 30 million streams on Spotify alone and destined-to-be pop classics like “Love Letter,” a proper 90s/00s inspired R&B-pop banger and ‘Loyal To Me’s’ little sister (according to Nina). The album also features empowering anthems like the stand out ‘Empire’ not to mention deeply personal songs such as ‘Chloe,’ ‘Things I Say When You Sleep,’ and ‘Last December.’
After a whirlwind two month stint in North America, Nina will return to the UK kicking off a headline tour on April 8 before heading over to Australia and New Zealand in late May for a string of live dates.
