ALBUM OF THE WEEK: Nadine Shah - Filthy Underneath

23 Feb 2024

Nadine Shah announces her fifth album Filthy Underneath will be released on 23rd February as the inaugural release on EMI North. The follow-up to 2020's critically acclaimed Kitchen Sink and 2017's Mercury Prize nominated Holiday Destination, the announcement comes alongside lead single Topless Mother which was just premiered by Steve Lamacq on BBC 6 Music.

Filthy Underneath chronicles a period of unprecedented turbulence in Nadine Shah's life. And yet, the experience of listening to it is oddly life-affirming - a parade of ghosts spanning the entirety of Nadine's 37 years, moving with balletic beauty to the music that Nadine and long-time co-writer and producer Ben Hillier have created around them, with renewed emphasis on placing melody and movement front and centre.
