Nina Nesbitt lines up a big year ahead with the release of her brand-new single ‘When You Lose Someone.’ It comes as she continues work on her eagerly anticipated new album, which will follow later this year.
Exploring the overwhelming intensity of grief, Nina wrote the song during a time of introspection and emotional turmoil. Set to mournful strings and elegant piano, Nina’s voice is full of feeling and longing as she candidly comes to terms with the situation. “It’s not something that just fades over night,” she sings, “It’s something that stays for the rest of your life.”
‘When You Lose Someone’ also has another trait of a classic pop song – the ability to be interpreted in different but immensely personal ways. For some it will be about the death of a loved one, for others it will be about a break-up or even separated by distance. Whatever it means to the listener, Nina’s Performance is a warm comforting hug of a song that reminds listeners that they’re not the only one battling through such emotions.

Speaking about the track, Nina reveals, “Whether someone has passed away or for whatever reason isn’t in your life anymore, grief has many forms and faces. Learning to be without someone you love is one of the hardest things.”

Nina’s new music follows the huge global fanbase she established with her second album ‘The Sun Will Come Up, The Seasons Will Change’. That project accumulated over 530 million streams, including 100 million+ for the Radio 1 playlisted ‘The Best You Had’‘ – a song that won over famous fans led by Taylor Swift and Chloë Grace Moretz. ‘The Sun Will Come Up…’ and its subsequent deluxe edition elevated Nina to a place in Spotify’s Top 500 artists in the world as while her tracks have featured on over a thousand of the platform’s playlists. That album raised the bar for the singer, songwriter, and producer as she emerged from a rising prospect to an artist with a global reputation. The album amassed a staggering half-a-billion streams (including for the now classic ‘Loyal To Me’ which was Top 10 most added at Top 40 radio) and propelled her into Spotify’s top 500 artists in the world. Earning acclaim from the likes of Marie Claire who praised the album for its “Joyful, dance-y pop with wrenching indie ballads, displaying a newfound maturity in the…songwriting.” and Billboard Magazine who hailed it “an iridescent work of pop mastery, showcasing Nesbitt’s proficiency as a songwriter, vocalist and producer,” with V Magazine proclaiming, “‘The Sun Will Come Up’… captures the precise moment an artist finds herself blossoming into a full-blown pop star.”
