Nadine Shah unveils new single "Trad"

25 March 2020, 10:04 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

Nadine Shah is back with "Trad", a second glimpse of her forthcoming album Kitchen Sink.

"Trad" is the second single to be shared from Kitchen Sink, after last month's lead single "Ladies For Babies (Goats For Love)".

Kitchen Sink will be Shah's first LP since 2017's Holiday Destination.

She says of her new album, "It’s a conversation between me and so many of my friends in our 30's. There’s that panic that so many of us have that we are running out of time, when it comes to having children. It’s like when we were younger we all made our own timelines in our minds of when we thought we would do certain things. If you were to tell 14 year old me I’d be 34, unmarried and have no children I’d have never believed it. Lots of my friends I’ve spoken to did this very same thing."

"For the album I spoke to so many women. Women who want to have children and can’t physically, women who can physically but choose not to, all different scenarios," adds Shah. "My good friend, a woman in her late 50’s chose not to have children and continues to be one of my favourite musicians and most youthful vibrant person I know. Her story is in this album too. Essentially I’m writing about so many women that I just love. The new mothers, the rock stars, the ones doubting themselves who need our support, the ones who are ill but show an indescribable strength."

"Trad" is out now. Nadine Shah's Kitchen Sink album lands via Infectious Music on 5 June, and is available to pre-order now.
