Nao Announces New Album 'Saturn' And Accompanying Tour

Monday, 10 September 2018 Written by Laura Johnson

Nao will release her second album this autumn.

'Saturn', the follow up to 2016's 'For All We Know', is due out on October 26. It will feature her previously shared singles Another Lifetime and Make It Out Alive featuring SiR. In a statement about the record, Nao said:

“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.”

The London-based artist will support the album with a world tour that will head to the UK and Ireland next spring, calling in Manchester, Leeds, Birmingham, Dublin, Bristol and London, where she'll play the O2 Academy Brixton. Tickets go on sale at 10am on Septemer 14.

As part of the Saturn World Tour she has also lined up shows in Japan, North America and Europe.
