Nadine Shah has announced that her fourth studio album, ‘Kitchen Sink’, will be released via Infectious Music on 5 Jun. And to prove she means business, she’s also put live the video for the LP’s lead single ‘Ladies For Babies (Goats For Love)’.

Explaining the story behind that track, Shah says: “My brother was making a comment on sexism when he was younger and made a painting of a man embracing a goat with the phrase ‘ladies for babies, goats for love’. It always stuck with me, I guess cos it sounded daft, but really because even back then I knew its true meaning and intent”.

“I was also thinking about a lot of the songs I would have been listening to at the time, songs I sang along to innocently without question of the meaning”, she goes on, then revealing “‘Ladies For Babies’ is a direct response to ‘All That She Wants’ by Ace Of Base”.

“I reversed the gender and I poke fun at a husband who expects nothing more from me, as a wife, than to carry his child and perform the role of the obeying subservient trophy wife”, she explains. “Only this time the mistress is a farmyard animal”.

The single is a good starting point for the new album which, she confirms “explores subjects of sexism and tradition”. Though, she adds, “it’s not all about bestiality, I promise”.
