Nina Nesbitt has opened a new and reflective chapter ahead of the release of her forthcoming third studio album. Recent singles ‘Summer Fling’ and ‘Life’s A Bitch (L.A.B)’ felt like a total reset for the British singer-songwriter as she began to re-tell her story to listeners. But new single ‘When You Lose Someone’ is the defining moment of strength and clarity that you’ve been waiting for from her.
Exploring the intensity of grief, she details the hard lessons she’s learnt while trying to continue growing in the moments where she’s faced with excruciating heartbreak. “I go from feeling numb to feeling everything at once, and I don’t know if I wanna cry. One of the hardest things I’ve ever had to learn is how to lose someone” she honestly sings. Keeping the production minimalist, she leads the track with somber piano, soaring strings and a dreamy production mix which allows the emotional lyrics to take centre-stage.
Nina has always excelled in her vulnerable ballads. She has this calming presence that feels so comforting as she explores the different complexities of heartbreak and grief. It really is a song for anyone who has lost someone they loved and have struggled to let go completely. It’s ultimately heartbreaking and relatable but she manages to articulate the intense emotions so beautifully, and will have your heart feeling a little warmer and consoled.
