NIGHT THINKER EP TRACKLISTING:
Kate Nash unveils 'My Little Alien' video, UK live dates + confirmed to star in Jenji Kohan Netflix original G.L.O.W
Multi-talented, award-winning artist, actress and activist Kate Nash has released a brand new track and official video titled “My Little Alien.”
Shot in the Californian desert and staring her very own pet pooch Stella, “My Little Alien” is a loving tribute to her rescued “fur-baby” and as the holiday season approaches, comes with a friendly reminder to “adopt not shop” when it comes to rescuing a four legged friend.
"My Little Alien" was written after a trip to Rachel, Nevada, where I saw a UFO for the first time.” Explains Nash. “I took my rescue pup on the trip and I realized she is my best friend and although I have never met an alien she is like my little alien in a way. When I rescued her from a man in a coffee shop who wanted 20 bucks to get off drugs, she saved me at a time when I needed it most. Sometimes it feels like we're both from another planet. This song is about loving the strange.”
On the video, directed by Tyler Monsein, Nash continues. “We wanted to recreate the feeling of being the nomads that we are. Neither of us quite fit into the boxes we should but when we are together it makes sense. So we got back on the road in a vintage Chinook and drove to Area 51!'” Watch the official video for “My Little Alien” here and listen to the track on iTunes and Spotify from today.

Recently signed to Polydor, Ed Harcourt returns with his seventh album Furnaces (out August 19th 2016), the most ambitious and abrasive album of his career.
On Sunday evening, the BBC Radio 1 Rock Show premiered ‘Dionysus’ - the first taste from Furnaces. The gnarled track is available now, alongside the apocalyptic paean ‘The World is on Fire’.
Furnaces was produced by legendary producer Flood, a long-time ally of Ed, who has previously worked with the likes of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, PJ Harvey and Foals.
The result is an album that, for all its fire and brimstone, is also euphoric and celebratory. “I wanted to make a record that people can cry, f**k and fight to” says Ed. “I don’t think there are many records out like that at the moment, but all my favourite records have that, whether it’s Prince or Nine Inch Nails. I hadn’t made a record before that has this kind of danger to it.”
Fittingly, the album’s artwork was created by the legendary Gonzo artist and Hunter S Thompson collaborator Ralph Steadman. “It’s a dream come true,” says Ed. Throughout the album Ed plays guitar, bass, drums, piano, synths and assortment of other trinkets - often playing everything you hear! On some tracks, he was joined by his dream line-up: drummer Stella Mozgawa of Warpaint, bassist Tom Herbert of The Invisible & Polar Bear, vocalist Hannah Lou Clark, and percussionist Michael Blair, a frequent Tom Waits collaborator.
Ed Harcourt has enjoyed a truly unique career as a songwriter, producer and musician. Recently, he’s played piano at major festivals with the Libertines, toured as part of Marianne Faithfull‘s band and served as Musical Director for Beck’s Songbook shows at the Barbican.
He has released six critically acclaimed albums to date, and wrote and performed ‘The Way That I Live’, the soundtrack to Burberry’s 2014/15 festive campaign, which has garnered over 25 million views and 1 million streams. Alongside his own output, Ed is a prolific songwriter and producer writing for artists including James Bay and Paloma Faith; and producing for Sophie Ellis-Bextor and Kathryn Williams.

Kate Nash has returned to Zone 5 and with her she brings the Summer's finest pop offering 'Good Summer', produced by Dave Bassett and out today via Kate's own imprint Girl Gang Records.
‘Good Summer’ is literally the light at the end of the tunnel, an expression of relief, the type we all feel when the sun comes out and the warmth radiates your skin after 10 months of grey sky, central heating and soggy feet. “I’ve been a referee of my emotions,” sings Nash, over upbeat synths, skittering drums and dance-y guitar lines. It’s about her own return to contentedness in London. “In Britain, in the summer you let go of the stuff on your shoulders and go, Fuck it, I’m gonna get on this banana boat. Go crazyyyyy!’” The video for ‘Good Summer’, directed by Lee Jones and shot in her mum’s garden features all her best girl friends.
A lot has happened to Nash, a BRIT school graduate, since the release of her #1 record and Brit-Award gleaning debut ‘Made Of Bricks’ back in 2007 - failed relationships, record label fall-outs, punk record releases, a relocation to the other side of the world... And so it’s wonderful that the singer-songwriter, activist and heroic spirit is here today, possessed of an impervious rebellion and a lightness of being that makes her ‘give-a-fuck?’ honesty even more contagious. Everything seems to be coming full circle..
