In which she probes journalists and broadcasters...

Nadine Shah has detailed plans for her new interview series Payback.

The songwriter is no stranger to the interview process - indeed, Clash has spoken to her on numerous occasions - but now she's decided to flip the script a little.

Payback finds Nadine Shah cross-examining journalists and broadcasters, a series of Insta Live videos that allow her to probe writers.

She comments: "I’ve always found it a weird format, to be asked all these questions and talk about myself over and over. One sided conversations aren’t natural but I understand why they have to be the way they are. It’s often been the case over the years that me and whoever is interviewing will end up staying on in a pub and having drinks together long after the interview is concluded."

"I feel like once my part's done, it’s time to ask the questions back to them. Consequently I’ve made many good friends in music journalism on the back of these meetings."

She adds: "I’m not interested in the famous musician interviews famous musician podcast, I find them boring and egotistical. The music journalists are the ones with all the truly properly nitty gritty stories!"

It all kicks off tomorrow - April 30th - at 9pm with John Doran; founder of theQuietus, writer of the superb menk columns, and author of Jolly Lad, it'll no doubt be a riveting Q&A.

Nadine Shah's new album 'Kitchen Sink' will be released on June 5th.
