Nadine Shah has announced a new single 'To Be A Young Man' from her hotly anticipated debut album Love Your Dum and Mad. Due out 8 July via Apollo, the track's acoustic guitar hooks and swelling atmospherics seem to offer comfort in borrowed nostalgia whilst displaying the songstress' versatility as a highly distinctive vocalist and songwriter.__ Speaking about 'To Be A Young A Man' Nadine explains: I wrote this after chatting to a guy in a pub. The pub where I wrote most of the songs on this album. He was probably in his late 60s, I never got his name. We were both sat by ourselves at the bar and just started speaking. I remember he said during our conversation sometimes I forget that i'm not a young man, then I catch my reflection . I can't emphasise enough that he was NOT a dirty old man chatting up a young girl. He just told me stories of his glory days, the freedom he felt in youth. After many an anecdote he paused, looked back at me and said oh, to be a young man again! So we invite you to pull up a stool and share in that warm conversation and the redemptive tales of Nadine Shah as they are set to run and run in 2013. With two critically acclaimed EPs firmly under her belt, Nadine Shah will be releasing Love Your Dum and Mad through Apollo Records on 22 July 2013.
