Following the announcement of her upcoming North American tours this spring with both Jake Bugg and Clean Bandit, Nina Nesbitt unveiled the official video for her incredible, self-penned and produced pop gem “Somebody Special” today.
Written in Nashville “Somebody Special” premiered earlier this month as a World First on Zane Lowe’s Beats1 radio show, and is a love song with a twist. “‘Somebody Special’ is about when you’ve been feeling a bit low and then you meet this person who changes everything,” explains Nina. “It’s about those first few months where everything you do together feels so exciting. You could be sitting in a dive bar drinking cheap cider, driving about in a broken down car, or sitting at home in your tracksuit, but you somehow feel like you’re having the best time because the feeling of falling in love sugar coats everything.” The Scottish artist also co-created the concept for the video and added her own further twist on the lyrics. “I think everyone wants to feel good about themselves”, Nina explains “but when you’re with somebody that is emotionally abusive it can really wear you down, so I wanted to show that moment where she realizes that she deserves more and finally takes control of the situation”.
