NAO will tour her new record, making a stop off in Dublin.
NAO’s follow up album to 2016’s ‘For All We Know’ is scheduled for release on October 26. She released the first track, featuring SiR late last month, and she’s now confirmed that there’ll be a Dublin stop on her tour.
She headlines Vicar Street on March 24. Tickets €24 including booking fee, on sale next Friday at 10am.
Here’s what she said about the forthcoming record.
“My friends kept telling me about the term ‘Saturn Returns’. It’s this idea that Saturn takes 29 years to orbit from when you’re born and it is the planet of blessings and growth. So by the time you’re around 29, between 27 and 32, something big happens in your life. It’s like waking up and coming of age, like: ‘I’ve been going through my twenties and what have I been doing in this relationship?’ What have I been doing in this job?’ You start to rethink everything – old stuff that your parents taught you or ideas that you believed in. It’s like a complete shedding of skin and it can be painful.”
