Made in the show of the introspection, loss and fear of lockdown, Älskar celebrates life in all of its complexities as well as love in every form imaginable.
 
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 XCXTove Lo) and the Swedish artist SHY Martin. It was then mixed by the award-winning Manon Grandjean (StormzyDave).


2022 has already seen Nina almost immediately sell-out two low-key shows in Glasgow and London as well as tour the States as guest to James Arthur. She can now confirm details of her first UK tour in three years alongside an EU tour. Fans who pre-order Älskar from the Official Store will receive access to a pre-sale for tour tickets for either the UK or EU tour, which opens at 9am UK time on Thursday, June 9th.  Tickets will then go on general sale from 9am UK time on FridayJune 17th. She has announced a date at Leeds Stylus on November 13th.
 
Nina is also now confirmed to play two huge stadium shows as guest to Coldplay at Glasgow’s Hampden Park on August 23rd and 24th. The Coldplay shows follow her previously announced festival sets at the Isle of Wight and Glasgow’s TRNSMT.
