‘Älskar’ shimmers with both tender, intimate ballads and huge escapist ‘80s-tinged bangers that beg for the dancefloor.

Nina wrote or co-wrote every song that features on the album, and produced or co-produced many of its tracks. Nina says, “Making this album was a completely different experience to anything I’ve made before, although a lot of the music was created remotely, I feel that I’ve processed so much and learnt a lot about the relationships in my life during the last few years. I wanted to capture all types of love in their raw forms, whether it be romantic, heartbreak, friendship, coming of age, familial or self love.” The new single ‘Pressure Makes Diamonds’ is one of the album’s brightest moments, all refined alt-pop sparkle and alluring effervescent melodies which are capped by Nina’s quick-flowing freestyle vocal. It’s a song of contrasts. Its sound is immediately catchy and fun, but it expresses a powerful message: the stereotypical expectations that so many young women are expected to conform to as they reach their mid-twenties. Nina wrote the song with its producers Jack & Coke (Charli XCX, Tove Lo) and the Swedish artist SHY Martin. It was then mixed by the award-winning Manon Grandjean (Stormzy, Dave). In addition to the singles, ‘Älskar’ introduces highlights at every turn. The early landmark moment ‘Teenage Chemistry’ celebrates Nina’s current long-term relationship with beat-driven dreamy elegance and the instantly relatable lyrics. It then journeys through the minimalist ambient pop of ‘No Time (For My Life To Suck’), an intimate, acoustic arrangement on ‘I Should Be A Bird’, and cinematic balladeering with ‘Colours of You’. By the time the album closes with the gorgeously glacial title track, it’s evident that Nina Nesbitt has created an album that primes her for a much bigger future. The deluxe format features the previously released ‘Summer Fling’ and ‘Life’s A Bitch’ plus the acoustic versions of both tracks.
