Nao has announced details of her second album, set to arrive next month.
‘Saturn’ follows up on 2016’s debut ‘For All We Know’, and is due for release on 26th October. The record will feature the previously shared singles ‘Another Lifetime’ and ‘Make It Out Alive’.
In a statement about the full-length, Nao explains: “My friends kept telling me about the term ‘Saturn Returns’. It’s this idea that Saturn takes 29 years to orbit from when you’re born and it is the planet of blessings and growth. So by the time you’re around 29, between 27 and 32, something big happens in your life. It’s like waking up and coming of age, like: ‘I’ve been going through my twenties and what have I been doing in this relationship?’ What have I been doing in this job?’ You start to rethink everything – old stuff that your parents taught you or ideas that you believed in. It’s like a complete shedding of skin and it can be painful.”
So there we go.
The record will be supporting with a world tour that hits the UK and Ireland next spring. Nao will play shows in Manchester, Leeds, Birmingham, Dublin, Bristol and London.
