BALERNO-born Nina Nesbitt returns home next week to promote new track Psychopath, part of Spotify’s Louder Together project, a program bringing artists together to collaborate on an original song in the spirit of community, empowerment and inspiration.
Nina launched Spotify’s first ever single collaboration for the global Louder Together project last month following the success of her recent single Somebody Special, which has now had more than 12 million streams.
Coinciding with Women’s History Month, Psychopath partnered Nesbitt with emerging female artists, Sasha Sloan and Charlotte Lawrence on a track that centres around the complications of being in love and some of the consequences of a relationship gone wrong.
“It’s such an honour to be part of Spotify’s first ever singles collaboration, especially being the only UK artist,” says Nesbitt, who plays the Liquid Room on Tuesday.
“It was great to work with fellow independent female artists. I can’t wait for people to hear the song we have written.”
Having grown-up in Balerno, Nesbitt enjoyed a whirlwind of success with her Peroxide album, but was soon ready to move on.
Her 2016 track, Chewing Gum, was the sound of her breaking out of her comfort zone and indulging fully her love of pop.
That desire to challenge herself continued with the low-key Life in Colour EP, inspired by experiences fans had sent in to her.
Still only 23-years-old, Nesbitt’s recent tracks - Somebody Special, The Best You Had and The Moments I’m Missing - demonstrate a huge leap forward from her Top 15 debut album Peroxide.
Demonstrating a command of modernist pop and R&B-tinged sounds which she blends with her own confessional songwriting, Nesbitt has been embraced by fans including Hollywood royalty in the shape of Chloë Grace Moretz and Taylor Swift, who included The Best You Had on her ‘favourite tracks’ playlist.
