Nesbitt wrote Pressure Makes Diamonds 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). The 27-year-old adds, “I wrote ‘Pressure Makes Diamonds’ about trying to navigate my way through the societal pressures I started to feel as a woman in my mid-twenties.”
Nina Nesbitt’s Pressure Makes Diamonds
Scottish singer-songwriter Nina Nesbitt has announced details of her eagerly anticipated third studio record Älskar, which is released on 2nd September. Nesbitt also dropped latest single Pressure Makes Diamonds today alongside its Wolf James-directed video which was created with the help of a predominantly female crew.
Described in a press release, 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. Älskar – meaning “to love” in Swedish, a reflection of Nina’s half-Swedish heritage – shimmers with both tender, intimate ballads and huge escapist ‘80s-tinged bangers that beg for the dance-floor.
Of the new record, Nesbitt 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.”
