VIDEO: INTERVIEW – Nina Nesbitt Readies Release Of Debut Album

Scottish singer-songwriter Nina Nesbitt has spent much of 2018 touring North America, sharpening up her live shows and showcasing some choice material from her first proper U.S. debut, The Sun Will Come Up, The Seasons Will Change, due to be released February 1, 2019 via Cooking Vinyl. The album’s title track was released earlier this year, in which Nesbitt explained, “This song is the light at the end of the tunnel where you remind yourself that nothing in life in permanent whether it’s good or bad. It’s almost like a self-help song that hopefully people can listen to in times of need and be reminded that things are constantly changing.” Nesbitt bursted into the music industry at a young age after a chance meeting with Ed Sheeran in 2011 at one of his radio gigs in Scotland, which would eventually lead to her joining him as an opening act for his European tour. Nesbitt would go on to the release of a couple of EPs and release a UK full-length debut, Peroxide, in 2014. Things would change drastically, however, as the up-and-coming artist was dropped from Island Records and left Nesbitt to regroup. The result of experience from the years of dealing with her feelings and new career strategy is The Sun Will Come Up, The Seasons Will Change, which Nesbitt describes as a journey from the low point of one’s life through the recognition of one’s value to coming out on the other side stronger and the confidence in self-worth. “I’m so proud of this album,” she says.“This is the album I always wanted to make on my own terms. It’s an honest account of somebody in their early ‘20s, giving a real window into their often ever changing life.”

B-Sides met up with Nina Nesbitt during her recent fall tour to talk about the writing process of The Sun Will Come Up, The Seasons Will Change and more. Check out the interview:
