Kate Nash has shared another early single from her fifth studio album.

Infused with beautiful string arrangements, Space Odyssey 2001 couples upbeat melodies with heavy-hearted lyrics. It's the latest preview of '9 Sad Symphonies', which is due out on June 21. She said:

"Space Odyssey is a love song about my partner who I was friends with for many years, but we met up at just the right time in the summer of 2017, both single and very unexpectedly fell in love. Romance came back into my life in this effervescent, joyful and healing way. I’d been through so much pain and toxicity.

"In the video, I arrive at this homestead having been through hell, exhausted and at the point of no return. I am rescued by a half man/half donkey. It’s inspired by Shakespeare and the way his plays use surrealism, fairy tale and classic love stories, but also the genuine complexities of human relationships. I’m taken into this homestead as I’m ready to give up and am healed by sunshine, friendship, food, joy, animals, nature and falling in love with someone you really don’t expect, which transforms me from a broken, bloody mess to a higher level self (in this case, a fairy)."

Following the previously unveiled lead single, Millions Of Heartbeats, the new track is inspired by the classic 1968 Stanley Kubrick film and finds the Brit Award-winning artist reflecting on the first date with her current partner. She continued:

"It's the wrong film for a date, but I love the film. I like making jokes in songs. I like that there's this beautiful love song but it's also complaining about this critically acclaimed film being too long. I don't recommend it for a first date."

Alongside the new music, the singer has also announced a special 7" for this Saturday's Record Store Day, containing two unreleased tracks, Back At School and Space Odyssey 2001 (demo).

Nash will play Hackney's EartH on May 17 and London's KOKO on November 28. She'll also support The Kooks on Brighton Beach this summer, as well as appearing at Glastonbury Festival, Kendal Calling and Boardmasters.
