"It’s one of my favourite songs from the record so I’m pleased people have been enjoying it."

The 25-year-old, whose mother Caty is originally from Sweden, had been due to travel to Stockholm earlier this month to finish writing her eagerly-awaited third album, but had to postpone the trip due to the global coronavirus outbreak.

Nina, who has 183,000 Twitter followers, promised to keep fans entertained by sharing music and pictures of what she's doing to prevent boredom during the coronavirus lockdown.
