Nadine Shah has shared her powerful new single 'Holiday Destination' – prompted by the migrant crisis.
The songwriter is set to release her third album on August 25th, and has chosen to unveil the title track 'Holiday Destination'.
The song was the first to be written to the new record, and it's "a response to this really harrowing news piece about migrants and refugees arriving on the shores of Kos in Greece by the thousands. There were some holidaymakers being interviewed and they were talking about how the situation was ruining their holiday. Despite their total and complete lack of empathy the thing which shocked me most was their bold and unashamed stance of saying such things on national television."
"This is what we're seeing across the globe: people proudly expressing this hate fuelled rhetoric. It's like, wow – some people really don't care and they'll happily talk about how they don’t care. I just don't get it."
A powerful, striking work, 'Holiday Destination' finds Nadine Shah doing what she does best: telling it exactly how she sees it.
