Nadine Shah announces new record Fast Food and UK tour

20 January 2015, 13:14 | Written by Laurence Day

Nadine Shah has announced a new album called Fast Food, as well as a UK tour for Spring to support the release.

We've already heard the lead single "Stealing Cars", a gorgeously full-sounding cut with shimmering guitars and flickers of hope. Compared to her stunning 2013 debut Love Your Dum and Mad, it sees Shah dabble in grander production and grander themes - everything seems bigger, and if you want more proof, you can hear some new snippets in the trailer further down the page.

Fast Food is released 6 April via Apollo Records, and will be supported by a run of UK dates.

Speaking about the album's lyrical content, Shah has said:

"My favourite love stories are the unconventional ones. The ones that aren’t like rom-coms because those aren’t the real stories, that’s not how it actually happens. For years I had this romanticised ideal of what love would be. I thought it would be perfect and that I would always be someone’s first love but as you get older, people have been in love before. That’s a large part of what Fast Food is about, the sudden realisation that you're never going to be anybody's first love ever again."
