Nina Nesbitt will release her new album ‘Älaskar’ later this year, she has announced. New single ‘Pressure Makes Diamonds’ is out now, and she’s got tour dates coming up too.

“Making this album was a completely different experience to anything I’ve made before”, she says. “Although a lot of the music was created remotely, I feel that I’ve processed so much and learnt a lot about the relationships in my life during the last few years. I wanted to capture all types of love in their raw forms, whether it be romantic, heartbreak, friendship, coming of age, familial or self love”.

“I wrote ‘Pressure Makes Diamonds’ about trying to navigate my way through the societal pressures I started to feel as a woman in my mid-20s”, she adds.

The album is set for release on 2 Sep. Meanwhile, those tour dates will happen in November. These are them:

13 Nov: Leeds, Stylus

14 Nov: Brighton, Chalk

15 Nov: London, Electric Brixton

17 Nov: Bristol, Trinity Centre

18 Nov: Birmingham, Institute 2

20 Nov: Manchester, Ritz
