Two years after the release of her debut album 'For All We Know', Nao returns with a brand new single 'Another Lifetime'. Directed by duo Zhang & Knight, the video for the song was premiered last night via The FADER. Watch HERE. The atmospheric video shows Nao as she wanders the empty streets of Kiev among fiery sparks. It is simultaneously unsettling and awe-inspiring, perfectly conveying the deep emotionality of the song. Nao's distinctive vocals sail smoothly amongst the waves of soulfulness mixed with her signature, indomitable energy. She explores sounds and travels between genres, further cementing herself as one of the UK’s most original talents. 'Another Lifetime' serves as the first taster for Nao's upcoming sophomore release later this year.

“I was told writing my second album would be tough but so much has happened in my personal life since ‘For All We Know’ the songs just wrote themselves. ‘Another Lifetime’ came right at the end of both the writing process and an emotional process I’d been going through dealing with the breakup of a special long term relationship. Finishing the song felt like the full stop I needed to put on a difficult period of my life, so the next day I was like “that’s it, I’ve finished the album and this is the first song I want people to hear from it.” Nao
