London singer-songwriter Nazneen Rahman is back with her new single Midlife Musings, the first taste of her upcoming new album, and FM is proud to be premiering it today. With a similar sound to Jessie Ware and classic Sade, the jazzy new pop track showcases Rahman’s velvet vocals and relatable lyrics against a mellow bed of soulful beats and sunny brass. Midlife Musings is lifted from her new record I’m Too Old To Die Young, which will be release on 18th October.
“We all have moments when we look in the mirror and wonder – ‘Am I living the life I want to live?” explains Rahman on the new single. “Midlife Musings is a song for those moments. I wanted to create a simple production to give a timeless soundscape to this timeless and universal question. Tomorrow never comes – so go out and live your dreams today. It’s not easy, but we can do it.”
Nazneen Rahman writes songs about your life, about everyone’s life -from the mundane to the magical. Her songs capture you with rich storytelling and velvet vocals that are in turn emotional, honest & sensual. Her upcoming new LP follows her debut album Can’t Clip My Wings in 2014 and its follow-up Answers No Questions in 2017.
With sophisti-pop, jazz and electronic influences that feel both fresh and timeless, Rahman has enjoyed radio support from BBC Radio London. Now with her most ambitious set of songs to date, she takes listeners on a journey contemplating our fragile, changing relationships with time, ageing and identity with Midlife Musings forming the perfect thematic and musical introduction.
