I'm thrilled to share some big news with you all: my new album Crying On The Bathroom Floor will be released on the 6th of August 2021. The album features a selection of songs written and performed by female artists and songwriters that I love and respect, including my new single 'Daniel' which is out now. To celebrate the album's release, I will be heading out on the road for a series of intimate acoustic shows (performing new tracks plus some of your older faves) along with Q&As this September.
If you pre-order the album now from my official store (on signed CD, exclusive marble vinyl LP or cassette) you'll gain access to an exclusive ticket pre-sale this Weds 28 April at 9am. General sale begins Thurs 29 Apr at 9am.
I've always enjoyed singing other people's songs. There is a liberation to it. It's how I feel when I approach a script. I have reverence for the piece of art and the artist who created it. After 18 years of recording and performing a lot of original material, I loved the idea of creating an album that celebrates some of the modern female artists I so admire in pop. In today's times it's so much easier and accepted to occupy other genders, ideas and explore new avenues. I wanted to understand what it might be like to sing their lyrics; a song about a boy called Daniel; crying on the bathroom floor, feeling like Elizabeth Taylor. This is not a covers album as such, well certainly not in the standard way. I wanted to bring songs from female artists who I admire into a new arena. I wanted to work with Richard X again and create a true pop record. It's strange because I feel I have ended up with a piece of work that feels truly me, despite the songs not being written .... by me. I feel connection to the lyrics, and the stories, and the women who wrote them. The songs became my songs, the words my words for all the time I was performing. Now they are there for the next person to interpret and embody.
My new single Daniel is available to stream/download now. The video directed by my incredibly talented friend and collaborator @wizfilmmaker is also out now. Check out both via the link below...

NINA and The Secret Chord come together to create a dreamy / nostalgic synthpop song called “BERLIN”. The lyrics suggest a romantic affair between two lovers in the German Capital, but at the same time, the song can be a “life affair” with the city itself. Guest appearance on guitar by Radio Wolf.
NINA quotes: “BERLIN is a homecoming song for me. I recently moved back to the city, after living in London, UK for over 15 years. When Joakim from The Secret Chord sent me his demo, I instantly connected to it. I really adore The Secret Chord and my heart always belongs to Berlin.”

Sight Telma Club’s second single “Bad Thing” is a collaboration with prominent Retrowave figure LAU. As soon as the French producer connected with the Barcelona-based singer, they knew that they were creating Synthwave magic. It was an organic musical ping pong of ideas and “Bad Thing” was born.
Dark synth sounds and strong lyrics tell the story of being fooled by a lover, trying to move on and not making the same mistakes again, no matter how hard it may be.
Sight Telma Club (AKA Thomas Le Dolédec) is a mega talented dynamic producer and visual artist (he directed the video for this track also) and coupled with LAU’s powerful vocals and their diabolical sense of details they achieve greatness.
