Listen: Nina Nesbitt returns with Chewing Gum

The eighties influence on Nina Nesbitt's latest single, 'Chewing Gum', is clear from the opening electronic beat! Have a listen now here!



Nina Nesbitt returns with the ‘Modern Love’ EP. Released on 5th February on Island Records, the feisty lead single ‘Chewing Gum’ introduces us to a 21-year-old Nina. Her forthcoming live dates sold out in under 30 minutes.

In February 2014, a 19-year-old half Scottish, half Swedish Nina Nesbitt released her debut album ‘Peroxide’. It hit the mid weeks at No.1, charting at No.11 in the UK and No.1 in Scotland. Top 40 singles ‘Stay Out’ and ‘Way In The World’ were both playlisted by Radio 1 and helped take her total combined YouTube and VEVO views to over 30 million.

Nina has spent the last two years growing from a youthful singer-songwriter into a bona-fide pop star. Having just turned 21, she’s back with a collection of songs that she feels truly reflect who she is. Released on 5th February, the ‘Modern Love’ EP, “represents a new state of mind, a new person and a new life,” Nina says. “It's a big departure from the 17-year-old girl with an acoustic guitar but it feels like the most honest music I've written. I've been left alone to do whatever I want without anyone breathing down my neck saying, “that's not you,” or trying to water it down. I've spent the past two years living with friends in London and sonically documenting it. {Lead single} ‘Chewing Gum’ is an empowering track that I wrote about the transient types of relationships people have when they’re trying to figure out what they want and they’re not ready to fully commit.” This sentiment is portrayed brilliantly in the video for the track.

Nina’s rise has been remarkable. Since signing with Island Records in 2012, she has sold out four UK headline tours, performed at the biggest UK festivals, including Glastonbury, T in the Park and V Festival, toured Europe and played shows in New York, LA, Austin and Hong Kong. Recently shot by esteemed Vogue photographer Damon Baker, she has been a muse to AEO jeans and Calvin Klein’s social media ambassador (CK personally chose to cover a global event in Hong Kong with Justin Bieber). She was also recently selected to represent the Young Voice at The Women In The World summit with Tina brown alongside Cara Delevigne, Nicole Kidman and Meryl Streep.

Nina, who co-produced her debut album with Jake Gosling (Paloma Faith, Ed Sheeran, One Direction), while working very closely with Iain Archer (Jake Bugg) now has her own home studio set-up. “It's called Niightwatch studios,” she says, “because I usually start around midnight, when everything is quiet.” She takes production credit for EP track ‘Masquerade’. Other credits go to Dan Lancaster (Bring Me The Horizon) for ‘Chewing Gum’ and Fred Ball (Rihanna) for ‘Take You To Heaven’.

Things aren’t going to be quiet for long and as Nina’s fanatical following looks set to mushroom by several more million, she is about to embark on what will be her most exciting year yet.
