New Release: Nadia Reid – Oh Canada

Taken from forthcoming record Out Of My Province, Nadia Reid has unveiled new track “Oh Canada”

About the track, Reid states: “It is also about big love and new love and navigating being an artist in love with an artist. I was on tour a lot and I was getting more and more attention. There was friction and resentment. So “Oh Canada” is about that relationship breaking down essentially. It was me working out what I was waiting for and what I wanted from life at that point in time. I finished the song in Portugal.”

Take a listen below…

Produced by Trey Pollard (Foxygen) and Matthew E. White (Natalie Prass, The Mountain Goats), the new album features Nadia’s lushest arrangements to-date, and at the centre of it all is her immaculate, immense voice and a perspective that’s at once inquisitive and empathetic. “As an artist, progression is key. I want to always be changing, pushing boundaries, to feel growth. It’s good for us,” Reid says.

Out Of My Province takes its title from an interview with one of Nadia’s favourite New Zealand authors, the late Janet Frame, in which the interviewer asks if she has considered the supposition that she is one of the greatest writers of the twentieth century, to which Frame uncomfortably replies, “That question doesn’t reach me. It’s out of my province.” Explains Nadia, “I was so moved by her response for some reason. I am enamoured by her books. I can re-read them at any time and take such comfort from them. So ever since… out of my province. That phrase has never left me.”

Nadia has announced an extensive UK and European tour to accompany the release of Out Of My Province. U.S. dates, including performances at SXSW, will also be announced soon…
