UK singer songwriter Kate Nash has announced via twitter that she will soon be releasing new music. Nash (now based in LA) has also confirmed that she will be embarking on a short UK tour later this year.
Kate Nash first rose to prominence back in 2007, when she released her boisterous piano led song ‘Foundations’. ‘Foundations’ peaked at the number 2 spot in the UK singles charts and was the standout track on her 2008 album ‘Made of Bricks’.
‘Made of Bricks’ became a number one album and eventually achieved platinum status in the UK with Nash becoming one the most most iconic figures of the UK indie scene of the late 2000s. During that time Nash won a string of awards and had a highly publicised relationship with ‘The Cribs’ frontman Ryan Jarman. She went on to released two more albums, 2010’s ‘My Best Friend Is You’ and 2013’s ‘Girl Talk’. Both albums were well received by critics but failed to live up to the success of ‘Made of Bricks’ and Nash seemingly disappeared from the limelight.
Posting on twitter yesterday Nash said: “I drop a new tune exactly 1 week from now on Aug 8th“.
She also posted a list of dates for her upcoming UK tour. The dates are as follows:
06 October – London Oslo
07 October – Birmingham O2 Institute3
08 October – Manchester Neighbourhood Festival
09 October – Glasgow O2 ABC
11 October – Leeds Wardrobe
The singer also hinted that she may be planning on a larger tour in the near future saying: “If you can’t make these dates & are not in the UK this is only the beginning so have no fear. #nashisback so u can relax now”
Nash continued: “Want to announce rn but not enough ppl awake on Sunday at 7.00 so not fuckin about like that. I know how to run tings”.
